I am a newby using the kerio mailserver on a SuSE Linux 9.1 platform.

I experienced a problem receiving the mails generated by the Linux host.

They are not transferred into the kerio mailserver.

Is there any chance to configure the Linux system to use the kerio mailserver instead of the postfix or sendmail in order to transfer system messages into the kerio mailserver?

Has anybody a suggestion on how to achieve this functionality?

Thank you for your answers in advance

Disable postfix or sendmail if you're not using them, or place either them or kerio on a separate ip address and/or port.

You should be able the following command to see if you're mailserver is properly configured and listening for incoming mail traffic: telnet <your_mail_server> 25

You can't have more than one mail server listening on the same ip and port.

You could bind sendmail to and kms to your external ip address. This would allow you to use sendmail as your default mta for apache/php or whatever and kms as your mailserver.

I also have this same question/issue, and I'm not sure I understand how to set this up. Is there any way to have system messages generated by the system delivered to my KMS mailbox? Can KMS be configured so that it is the default MTA for the system, so that postfix, sendmail, and any other MTA's can be removed?

By the way when I telnet to localhost on 25, KMS responds, which I would expect. The problem with that is I don't believe that the system messages are delivered using SMTP since they are local. I think this might be part of the challenge; how to get system messages to be delivered via SMTP.
