Issue

  • You are note able to restart / start postfix and getting the below error.

fatal: parameter inet_interfaces: no local interface found for ::1

Solution

    • Edit the file /etc/postfix/main.cf
      vim /etc/postfix/main.cf
    • search for the line inet_interfaces = all
    • And change it to:
      inet_interfaces = 127.0.0.1, 10.10.11.12 10.10.11.12 is your local IP address
    • :wq! Save and exit
  • restart postfix.
    service postfix restart

    Thank you very mach! It’s help me to quickly resolve this problem.
    But I made next changes:
    ….
    inet_interfaces = localhost
    inet_protocols = ipv4

      It looks like you just want to use postfix from localhost only. Thanks a lot Igor for sharing your workaround as comment.
