Howdy feyock,

It’s not permissions–this bit of Virtualmin has root-level permissions, and since SELinux is disabled, nothing has can stop it.

It’s probably something wrong in the Postfix module configuration, or in the Postfix installation.

First up, are you sure Postfix is installed? It’s not part of a default Fedora server installation.

rpm -q postfix

And is it the default MTA for your system?

alternatives --display mta

It ought to say:

link currently points to /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix

Plus a bunch of other stuff…mostly pointing to .postfix suffixed files.

If so, browse to the Webmin Services:Postfix module and see if things look sane. Can you look at all of the various pages, without error? Is there a Virtual Maps file configured? This should be "hash:/etc/postfix/virtual".

The config recheck will reveal this as a problem, but only if you have Postfix selected.
