Well, because postfix demands the correct IP there, and baulks
with
"localhost 127.0.0.1. There is a bugzilla on that, no real
solution from either suse or postfix people. Both do what they do
intentionally.

Do you have the bugzilla number handy? Wietse Wenema usually
doesn't leave bugs in his software, he's very picky.

Yes, before you ask, I use postfix on a laptop.

Sure, it's installed by default, isn't it ?

Yes, but most people don't use it, even less on a laptop.

They may not know that they do, but many services and such (e.g.
smartd,
cron) that deliver mail to root. For that, typically the sendmail
wrapper is used to drop a mail straight into the postfix queue.

Absolutely, but that is local traffic, not internet traffic. I use it
for internet.

Aha, that does make a difference.

Yep.

Today, for instance, I'm at a different site and I'm sending this from
Thunderbird using postfix as an intermediary. Oh, yes, it is a
complication. The advantages are that Thunderbird can fire and forget,
with a proper log, and that I learn. :-)


It was:

<https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=824141>

Ah yes, I remember now. Does the problem persist with Leap15 ? IMO,
Wietse is correct when he says 127.0.0.2 cannot be listed as an address
when it does not exist. What's special about 127.0.0.2 ?

AFAIK it can be any 127.* address. It was ...2 because YaST wrote that
way. It was some time ago.


It wants:
192.168.1.14 Telcontar.valinor Telcontar

As that IP changes in a (mobile) laptop, I have to adjust hosts file
to reflect the current reality.

You must have an unusual setup - I never have to do anything like
that (when I go traveling).

And do you actually use postfix to send your email? Because that is
unusual nowdays.

Not my personal email, just whatever the system generates. However,
running a mailserver on a dynamic address should not be an issue,
although it is unusual. Would inet_interfaces = all work for you,
maybe?



That's what I have now in this laptop.

As a test, I have left in hosts this:
127.0.0.2 minas-tirith.valinor minas-tirith

#nm-mine-placemarker
#192.168.1.13 Legolas.valinor Legolas


and restarted postfix. Now I will try to send.
