View Full Version : Mail Server Help

3rd May 2006, 05:51 AM
Okay, I am racking my brain. It has been a while since I have setup up a mailserver, however, I checked my existing one to my new one and they appear to be the same.

Here is the problem. On the new server when I telnet it in I can telnet in with the domain name and send mail and receive it on port 25 no problem. When I try to send mail from like webmail or outlook, it never arrives. I am using sendmail and Cyrus-Imapd. I need to stay with these to migrate my existing accounts over. Please help what could be wrong?

Check mail log file for errors. Without logs life is ruuuuufff
Stop IPtables
Make sure any firewall is open
May need to set SELinux to permissive
Try telnet port 110
make sure domain name is correct and operable on your network, else try using the ipnumber instead of name.
make sure postfix and ipop3 servers are running
ps -e shows all running processes look for master (postfix) and pop3. dovecot, imap, etc. , ,
