Cannot bind to port 25 with the Balancer (sendmail)


Snapt images (depending on configuration) may have the sendmail daemon running on port 25 on localhost. This can cause issues when your Balancer group is bound to and there are two options –

  1. Specify the IP to listen on

You may want to set an IP for your Balancer group when adding it, instead of saying Any. This will prevent the clash on localhost port 25.


  1. Disable sendmail completely

You can run the following commands to ensure it does not start at boot

service sendmail stop

systemctl stop sendmail

chmod 000 /usr/sbin/sendmail
