Slightly geeky, overly cynical and delusional about my own self importance.

Then either there is a firewall (iptables) in place, or you haven't configured postfix to listen on the internet facing IP address (are you sure it's not just listening on localhost?)

For those of us who don't know hive, can you show us the format of the test file (i.e. show us some of the content).

@aesin and searching for '!' isn't that easy :)

comment How do I find out what process is consuming pending signals?
@TomEllis the text I pasted suggests those aren't signal masks, but counts, however, they would be huge if that was the case so there must be something else going on.

comment How do I find out what process is consuming pending signals?
@JosephR. you could do that, but the time it would have taken me to work out the ps command to get the numbers, was longer than the time it took find to trawl through the process tree (in my case).

Is there a firewall in the way, is postfix listening on the right ports/interfaces?

Before you set this up, could you actually send mail from the Internet into your VPS using your @mydomain.com address? Does mydomain.com have either an MX record, or an A record on the mydomain.com entry which points to your VPS?

Been using bash for years, and never knew about that expansion - so we both learned something useful today! Which is why I love answering questions on StackExchange.

comment How to manage all logs on VPS
@Andy rather than enter a long discussion, best to add these kinds of things to your original question, or, ask another question on the site. I've updated my answer though to respond to your specific point.

Yes, every app with logs should have an entry in logrotate.d (or logrotate.conf depending). As to whether installing software creates one, it's more common than not if you use a Linux distribution (like Debian, CentOS, etc.) rather than rolling your own.

Is this for a one off or a permanent solution on multiple devices?
