Trying to port my wordpress sites to the new appliance (17.1), and having some problems with postfix complaining about not being able to use TLS properly.

Looking at /etc/postfix/ it appears to have changed a bit, and I'm wondering if that's what's to blame. 

Can you point me in the right direction?

Here's my error log entries for mail.

I think I had the hostname wrong.  It appears to be working now.

Sorry that I was a bit slow Brian.

Glad to hear that you worked it out.

For what it's worth, in v17.x we did change Postfix config to use TLS encryption by default (previous default was unencrypted email). By default it just uses a self signed certificate.
