Virtualmin relies on the Postfix module, removing that would unfortunately cause problems.

However, if you're not using email, you could always disable the "Mail for Domain" feature in System Settings -> Features and Plugins.

My suggestion would be to reinstall the Postfix module, and then disable the features you don't need using the Features and Plugins section.

Thanks for your fast reply, Eric. Was very helpful.

I finally solved doing this steps.

  1. Download WebMin PostFix package from Standart Packages website and decompress it.
  2. As root, execute this command "/usr/share/webmin/install-module.pl postfix.wbm /etc/webmin" ( In my case i needed to install form aptitude "sendmail-bin" too, manually )
  3. Restart webmin ( service webmin restart )

I've read on forums that reinstalling Postfix packages it would be enough, but nobody says it have to be the webmin packages... i tried to reinstall postfix module from aptitude ( apt-get install postfix postfix-pcre ) with negative results, webmin was unable to detect the installed package in any case.

But, hey, i want to uninstall al postifx services... no problem !

  1. WebMin -> WebMin Configuration -> WebMin Modules -> Delete -> Delete "PostFix Configuration" AND Delete "Virtualmin Mailman"

  2. Webmin-> System -> Software Packages -> Uninstall "PostFix"

Then, to avoid problems, i change default Mail server to "SendMail" VirtualMin -> System Settings -> Virtualmin Configuration -> Server Settings -> Mail server to configure = SendMail.

Save, restart all server, and working again all system without PostFix.
