Default FreeBSD 11 upgrade woes

Hi,

I had a FreeBSD 10.3 server running dovecot/postfix/mailman working AOK. I upgraded to 11.0 and, while I get no error in the mail client I'm using, I am not seeing any new email messages via IMAP. Sending email seems to be working just fine because I was able to send from an account on that box to an external gmail account and the message got through.

Furthermore, while the web UI for Mailman seems to be working fine, I tried a test send to a list on it and it never showed up in the Archive nor did it go out to another user on the list.

Can someone please suggest to me where I can look in certain log files, etc. to start troubleshooting this problem? I'm normally an OpenBSD guy and I'm a bit out of my depth here.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe it's a stupid question, but did you reinstall your ports/pkgs after the upgrade to FreeBSD 11?

Good question. Yes, I followed the steps in the handbook and did those outlined in 23.2.3.2 - Upgrading packages after a major upgrade.

I'm wondering if something changed with the new versions and I just need to tweak a configuration setting.

If there are significant changes from previous versions there could be a message coming wth the package; try
Code:
pkg info -D <pkg_name>
to see if there are some warnings.

Regarding logs instead, the location is always /var/log. However you can always try the "old trick" of launching those programs from command line to look for errors.

HTH

Turned out to be two things - one self-inflicted. I had forgotten that I had installed some things from compiled ports versus pkg because there was an issue with one of the packages at the time I set up the server. I followed the instructions in the handbook on how to fix that post-upgrade and that solved one problem.

The other was more odd. "newaliases" wouldn't update the db files for me. I had to run postalias /etc/mail/alias and postalias /usr/local/mailman/data/alias to update those files. Tailing /var/log/maillog gave me the clues I needed to solve that problem.

Everything is up and running. Next time (note to self), take a snapshot of the VM before doing a major version number upgrade. :-)

Thanks everyone!
