Webmin – Read User Mail Error ‘The mail server in the module configuration was not found on your system’

KB ID 0000885 Dtd 27/22/13

Problem

While setting up and configuring a new Postfix mail server, I attempted to use the Webmin ‘Read User Mail’ module, and got this error.

The mail server set in the module configuration was not found

Module Config Read User Mail
The mail server set in the module configuration was not found on your system, You will need to adjust the configuration to use the correct server.

Solution

At first I thought I needed to enter a servername into the config. However it seems when my VPS hosting company provisioned my server it installed sendmail by default, I needed to change it to Postfix instead.

1. Open the link it provides to the Read User Mail module configuration.

2. Scroll down to the system configuration section.

3. Change the Mail server Installed to Postfix.

Change Installed Mail Server

4. DON’T FORGET to scroll to the bottom and press ‘Save’.
