I'm having a problem with my WordPress contact form "using contact 7 plugin" it's not sending emails I found all the emails in "/var/mail/www-data" but never received one of them. Whenever I try to reload postfix I get this error "postfix/postfix-script: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running" by checking "mail.err & mail.log" I found these errors Sep 13 11:13:08 localhost postfix/postfix-script[17870]: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running Sep 13 11:13:13 localhost postfix/postfix-script[17974]: starting the Postfix mail system Sep 13 11:13:13 localhost postfix/master[17975]: fatal: bind 0.0.0.0 port 25: Address already in use Sep 13 11:13:42 localhost postfix/postfix-script[17983]: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running Sep 13 11:24:43 localhost postfix/postfix-script[18026]: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running Sep 13 11:24:54 localhost postfix/master[18130]: fatal: bind 0.0.0.0 port 25: Address already in use Sep 13 11:25:01 localhost postfix/postfix-script[18148]: fatal: the Postfix mail system is not running Sep 13 11:25:04 localhost postfix/master[18249]: fatal: bind 0.0.0.0 port 25: Address already in use How can I fix this?

Other than WordPress, do you need to send mail from your droplet for anything else? If not, remove Postfix and install exim4, instead. See WordPress email notifications.
