Internet Mail Problem
 
Hi

I have this odd problem and I've been looking at other threads regarding sending and receiving email problems in this forum, non of them were close enough to be a solution.

I have an Ubuntu Breezy Badger setup with postfix, courier POP3/IMAP, and I have set ISPConfig according to the perfect guide. I have Maildir ticked in ISPConfig settings.

Here's the problem... I can send and receive emails within the local domain. I can send email to internet mails like yahoo, gmail, and pretty much to any other domain. However, I can not receive emails from outside. I get the following error in my mail log:

Code:

Most of the time I get connection refused returned from my gmail account after a few a minute of sending an email to an account I created in ISPConfig.

I've been checking everything and all seem to be in order. I even tried all the suggestions in other threads and came back ok. I just can't find what's causing incoming mail from other domains to be blocked by POSTFIX

Run
Code:

newaliases
to get rid of this aliases warning.

Is webdeezsign.co.nz listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names?
What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

Yes webdeezsign.co.nz in listed in the /etc/postfix/local-host-names

Code:

mydestination = deezone.webdeezsign.co.nz, localhost.webdeezsign.co.nz, localhost
#mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

But you've commented out the correct mydestination line. It should be
Code:

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
Please change that and restart Postfix.

deezone 16th February 2006 18:53

I've made the changes in the main.cf as you suggested but now I cannot receive any emails at all, even from the local domain. I've checked the mailq and the following result came out:

Code:

DA34D5804A7  4581 Fri 17 06:04:52 testuser@gmail.com
        (connect to server1.webdeezsign.co.nz[202.180.104.57]: connection refused)
            testuser@server1.webdeezsign.co.nz

The above is just one of the emails that is stuck on the mailq and all have connection refused... even if I try sending a loop back email to testuser@webdeezsign.co.nz it stays in the que and won't deliver and then it say "connection refused."

falko 16th February 2006 19:11

Then add
Code:

deezone.webdeezsign.co.nz
localhost.webdeezsign.co.nz
localhost

at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names. Then you have all the domains you had in your old mydestination line in /etc/postfix/local-host-names, and it should work again. Don't forget to restart Postfix.

Sweet that did it. Thanks!

deezone 21st February 2006 03:49

Just a quick question. Why is it my local-host-names gets overwritten after having entered additional names for quite some time. It's like it resets back to its default value. This causes my mail mailserver not to receive incoming mail properly.

I'm on a dyanmic IP, I wonder if this has any effect on it?

falko 21st February 2006 09:49

ISPConfig overwrites that file whenever you change something in the ISPConfig interface.
You must put your manual changes below the line
Code:

#### MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ####
then they won't be overwritten by ISPConfig!

Thanks for the tip. Everything's sweet now.
