Problems with mail
 
I have setup ispconfig3. The webserver is working fine, but email will not work. I will admit that I am just learning to use ubuntu server. I keep seeing messages like this in my mail que:

What do I need to do to be able to get postfix to talk to other domains?

Thanks,

It seems your server is blacklisted: http://www.spamhaus.org/query/bl?ip=75.177.101.118

Did you check if your server is an open relay? http://www.spamhelp.org/shopenrelay/shopenrelaytest.php

hutchewon 8th August 2011 00:09

That's really weird.
 
Yes, I have tested it many times. I will look into it further.

Thanks so much for your help!

hutchewon 8th August 2011 13:13

In case this may help someone else.
 
After some research I have found the Roadrunner has blacklisted all of their ip addresses for SMTP use. So if you are hosting on a Roadrunner public ip then your SMTP will bounce. It doesn't matter if the port is open to your server.

Hmmm...Now all it have to do is figure out how to use Road Runners SMTP server to forward my outbound mail.

You could relay your mails through another mail server: http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_re...her_mailserver

hutchewon 9th August 2011 12:07

I will take a look when i get home from work.
 
I recieved the notification you had replied on my domain email account! Woot!

Which is interesting because my mail paths have disappeared from Ispconfig. I'll look at the manual tonight.

Thanks again for all of your help.
