|Question:||Post.Office was running nicely on Panther. Now, when I reboot, I see Postfix running instead of Post.Office. What happened?|
|Answer:||Mac OS X Server 10.3 has a fail safe feature that restarts Postfix, independent of any system configuration. The best approach is to disable Posfix.
You can do this, as root, using the GUI:
In Finder, pull down the Go menu and choose "Go to Folder"
Rename the file called "master" to "master.old".
Alternately, as administrator, in a Terminal Window:
mv master master.old
Once Postfix is disabled, Post.Office will start up correctly.
Another way to keep postfix from restarting is to comment out the following line from your /etc/watchdog.conf file:
postfix:respawn:/usr/libexec/postfix/master # Mail services - SMTP
This method is probably cleaner and should also allow Post.Office to start correctly.
