    I am obviously missing something because email is not being set out from the VPS. Did I need to activate/install/configure something to have this to work?

    No email is configured besides postfix for server emails. See front page at Centmin Mod - Menu based Nginx installer for CentOS servers for How to setup free @yourdomain.com Email Accounts with Outlook Live Domains - Centmin Mod - Menu based Nginx installer for CentOS servers and Email - Free @yourdomain.com Email Accounts & Alternatives | Centmin Mod Community

    And check if web host blocks smtp out emails. Vultr by default blocks smtp emails until you submit a ticket to request unblocking and lastly, if your VPS server's IP address is blacklisted or doesn't have SPF DNS records you could have emails blocked at the other end.

    I use Vultr for all VPS machines. I want to be able to get atleast the emails from Maldet when it runs on the VPS. I was just wondering if the postfix software was already configured to send emails out or was their another step I needed to do.

    I'll check with Vultr and see if I can get them to take the block off - maybe that will fix it. Thanks George!

    in that case pretty sure Vultr has blocked your smtp/email ability until you get them to unblock it

    When I setup a VPS on Linode, PostFix did not start, after I started the service I was able to send mail. Just a quick FYI.. I worked on it an entire day before I went back to the basics! :D

    Yeah it helps if postfix is actually running - which it normally should for Centmin Mod these days :)

    I had the same problem a couple of days ago on a reinstall, in this case I managed to fix setting IPv4 instead of all, in /etc/postfix/main.cf and restart postfix, very strange as it had been working before for me.
    # Enable IPv4, and IPv6 if supported
    inet_protocols = ipv4
