Run upcp -f to clear any local changes, then run upcp -b again.

upcp -f :

That looks fine. systemctl status postfix dovecot. Both should report up.

Both running.
but i still cannot send mail.
webmail / roundcube is working to login now. when sending mail smtp error -1

Based upon that information, your server ran out of storage and Postfix wrote an incomplete database record. This is in line with the other symptoms you are experiencing.

rm -f /var/lib/postfix/*.db ; systemctl restart postfix

Consider setting up Argos to forward you messages to your phone (or other endpoint) when you get close to using up available system storage.

hmm there is 64% storage used…

tryed the command. still no mail…

I would need to see the log file from /var/log/maillog otherwise it is impossible to provide further guidance after making the prescribed changes.

i dont see /var/log/maillog …

Log is always there. It’s where IMAP/POP3/SMTP logs to; see

Here’s a screenshot from the demo server for example.

im sorry yes is it :slight_smile:
:sleeping: looking in the wrong folder.
it is working again - I think I should have been a little more patient
