I am facing strange problem after today.

For months i am using iRedMail 0.9.2 and i have no problems at all. I received and send email all the way until today.

Today i install apt-get install sendmail and everything stopped working.

Now i can not receive and send emails.

So i menaged to remove sendmail and reinstall postfix but now in Roundcube when i try to send email i receive the following error:

SMTP Error (451): Failed to add recipient "theemail@gmail.com" (4.3.0 <office@superweb.bg>: Temporary lookup failure).

I removed sendmail and reinstalled postfix like this:

sudo apt-get purge sendmail
sudo apt-get install --reinstall postfix
sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart

Here is what my mail.log says:

Can you help me out resolve this problem. I think i have wrong configuration for my postfix.

Can you help me out resolve the problem?

Thanks in advance!

  • unsupported dictionary type: mysql Looks like you are missing the MySQL extension for postfix, available in package postfix-mysql. – sebix Oct 5 '15 at 19:33
  • Thanks i found it just after i post my question. It was the problem. Thanks once again :) – Venelin Vasilev Oct 7 '15 at 15:40
  • Ok, great it worked. I created an answer with the solution I proposed in the comment above. Please accept it, so the question will be marked as solved. – sebix Oct 7 '15 at 16:08
warning: mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/virtual_mailbox_domains.cf is unavailable. unsupported dictionary type: mysql

This is most probably due to the missing extension for postfix providing mysql lookup support. In most distributions / package managers the package is called postfix-mysql, so e.g.:

apt-get install postfix-mysql

Did you update the nameservers for the domains after the move? Do the domains resolve to that new server?
