    yesterday i ran an update on the server (suse 11, plesk 9.2.2). after it was finished i could no longer receive mail. i did much searching and troubleshooting but now i am stuck.

    I found the exact cause of the problem. when I run:

    postmap -s /var/spool/postfix/plesk/virtual

    there are only 2 email names in the file. I have tried to do:

    postmap hash:/etc/postfix/virtual and
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtual

    and i have no change. I have about 30 email accounts on the server. I would just like to know how i get the mail names back into the virtual.db.

    I am hoping someone can help quickly, and thank you in advance.

    thanks for the help parallels. A REAL 'thank you' to the members, here, for posting solutions in other threads. After much much more searching I finally ran the mchk, then reinstalled postfix. that worked. there still has to be an easier way. if i ever find one i will post it here.
