Is there anything in your mail log when someone tries to send an email to the server?

Did you check if the MX record of your domain points to the server? You can check that as follows:
Code:

dig mx yourdomain.com

try change your mydestination config to mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain on main.cf

just a quick update...........

I have 2 servers on two different broadband ISP's
server 1 has been running for 5 years plus on debian/ispconfig2 with no real problems.
It can receive mail from server2 and from gmail and yahoo etc.

Server2 is the one that I am testing now and is also running on debian but with ispconfig3.

It can send and receive mail to gmail yahoo etc but cannot receive from server1.

Any Ideas?

falko 27th September 2011 10:52

Dio server1 and 2 handle the same domains? In that case server1 probably thinks it is responsible for the mail so that it doesn't leave the server.

Any errors in server1's mail log when you try to send to server2?

shajazzi 27th September 2011 12:15

Hi falko,
I have the domain in question on both servers, however the dns is pointing to server1 for the last 3 days.
This is in the mail log on server1 when trying to send mail to website on server2

I do quick look at your log and you got certificate verification failed maybe this will help? http://stevejenkins.com/blog/2011/06...error-message/ I saw similar error on your log with this.

shajazzi 28th September 2011 11:03

Fixed
