I checked out the first suggestions already and it keeps throwing an error when I run “sudo /etc/init.d/postfix reload” <br> <br>This is the error <br> * Reloading Postfix configuration…
<br>postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running [fail] <br> <br> <br> <br> I am using 12.10 because it was DO one click set up for a Ruby app.

Ubuntu has stopped working on bugs for that release, you know. If yours is a production server, there’s no reason to not go with 12.04.3 LTS (Long Term Support). If you want the latest (which is <i>not</i> always the greatest), check out 13.10.
