Thread: Anyone know CommuniGate mail?

    Anyone know CommuniGate mail?

    As you will see I am really new with mail servers. I have Communigate installed on my RH box. It currently runs Apache and YaBB fine. I don't know much at all about mail though. Why am I getting this error::

    00:00:54.01 1 IMAP failed to start listener on port 143([0.0.0.0]). Error Code=network address (port) is already in use
    00:00:54.01 1 SMTP failed to start listener on port 25([0.0.0.0]). Error Code=network address (port) is already in use

    What do I need to do or install? Sorry this sounds sound stupid to some.

    # netstat --inet -lnap
    will show what's listening on what ports, check for those ports, and see what program it thats using them at this point.. My guess is you have sendmail running aswell..

    tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1190/sendmail: acce

    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:143 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1115/xinetd

    Am I supposed to stop sendmail? I use it for YaBB. xinetd is running on a few diff ports. Is that right? Thanx

    You can stop sendmail with no concern, yaBB uses a direct socket connection to the sendmail program, when sending mails. And the reason xinetd is listening on multiple ports is, that there are certain processes which can't run as deamons, so xinetd will service the ports they should be monitoring, and when it detects a connection on a given port, wake an instance of the process needed to service that port..

    I guess if you change the /etc/xinetd.d/imap file to say disable=yes then xinetd wont be listening on port 143.
