can't receive mail
 
Hello,

I've done de perfect setup fedora core 4 with ispconfig, and everything works, but not receiving emails.

I can receive mails from my mail account of my ISP (internet service provider), but not mail sent from accounts like gmail and hotmail.

Please help me with this...

Do the recipient domains' MX records point to your system?

Jordy 1st November 2005 17:05

yes, all the records of the domain are pointed to my server.

i did a test on dnsreport.com, and i found this:

Quote:

Mail FAIL Connect to mail servers ERROR: I could not complete a connection to any of your mailservers!

mail.xb360.nl: Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]]

If this is a timeout problem, note that the DNS report only waits about 30 seconds for responses, so your mail may work fine in this case but you will need to use testing tools specifically designed for such situations.

This is what I found out:

Code:

telnet mail.xb360.nl 25
Trying 145.53.43.100...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: No route to host

A ping however works... Make sure that your mailserver is running. Please post the output of
Code:

netstat -tap

Jordy 1st November 2005 17:37

yes my mailserver is running.
below the link to a screenshot of the output:

http://www.xboxgamers.nl/output.PNG
(the domain above, where the file output.PNG is hosted on, isn't pointed to my server, it has nothing to do with it)

Ok. Is 145.53.43.100 your server's IP address? From your screenshot it lokks like the IP address is 192.168.1.252. I guess 145.53.43.100 is your router's public IP address. Do you forward port 25 from your router to your ISPConfig system?

Jordy 1st November 2005 18:36

my server ip is 192.168.1.252, it's in a lan network with a router. The router's public IP address is 145.53.43.100.
And i'm forwarding port 25 tcp and udp to my server. I'm forwarding all the other ports too, like 80, 81, 21, 22 and so on.

Does your router's firewall block port 25?

Can you tell me wich ports I all must open? Then I can check it ;)

Jordy 1st November 2005 19:45
