Re: [suse-security] Opening SMTP for Postfix

I fixed it! I found in the main.cf file that there are two places with the inet_interfaces = specification. I don't know if yast2 put them there when I ran it for mail, or if this is standard. I sure hope not since this could be very confusing!!!

In /etc/postfix/main.cf:
inet_interfaces = all

and then:
/usr/sbin/postfix reload
