    Is Monit reporting host does not have mail server or mail server is not running?
    What shows
    # systemctl --state=failed
    Have you checked how you installed Monit and Monit configuration?

    Hello Taleman,
    Postfix is running. It is Monit's report:
    Mail: No mail servers are defined -- please see the 'set mailserver' statement in the manual

    Btw, that is not a service check monit is performing, ie. it is not saying your mail server is down, that is a setting for where monit should connect to send notifications.
