Start updating the toaster!

In a separate terminal window, run the following two commands:

  • tail -F /var/log/mailllog &
  • tail -F /var/log/mail/send/current &

See the watching logs page for more details.

Put that terminal window somewhere you can see it and periodically check up on it. While that's not expressly necessary, it's a recommended practice. You want to know if you break something before the phone starts ringing.

  • toaster_setup.pl -s pre
  • toaster_setup.pl -s ucspi
  • toaster_setup.pl -s vpopmail
  • toaster_setup.pl -s qmailadmin
  • toaster_setup.pl -s courier
  • toaster_setup.pl -s apache (optional)

If toaster_setup.pl has any problems running, fix what it complains about and then run it again with the same parameter. It will resume and finish that section.

If you are using (or plan to use) Qmail Scanner, check to make sure the following two lines exist in ~vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp. If you don't, toaster-watcher will remind you, frequently.

  • toaster_setup.pl -s qmail

Courier Notes

If you are upgrading from a version of Mail::Toaster that created startup files for Courier-IMAP (back when the port didn't), you'll need to remove both the old startup files and the symlinks to them. Go into /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ and remove anything that says pop or imap in the name. Also remove the symlinks to those files as follows:

  • cd /usr/local/sbin; rm imap imapssl pop3 pop3ssl
