how to setup external mail client to send mail
i setup a server with this tutorial:
The Perfect Server - Debian Squeeze (Debian 6.0) With BIND & Courier [ISPConfig 3]
then i installed roundcube instead of the squirrelmail
i can send and recieve mail with roundcube (webmail)
but when i try to setup a desktop email client like thunderbird,
i can only receive emails i cant send them.
i believe that i have tried using the submission port,
but that doesnt work wither,
thanks in advance.
Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?
i figured it out
i had to un-comment the submission port
and add the port to the ispconfig firewall.
that enabled it.
i also came across another error after i got it working,
about the file-system when the email client connected.
i installed the gamin library
apt-get install gamin
then i restarted courier services:
find /etc/init.d/ | grep courier | while read line; do $line restart; done
and the error went away.
thanks for your quick reply falko.
The same problem happens after upgrading to squeeze, keeping ispconfig 22.214.171.124. I have a dedicated server OVH.
In /var/log/mail.log :
Dec 31 17:20:02 ks_ postfix/smtpd: connect from localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
Dec 31 17:20:02 ks_ postfix/smtpd: lost connection after CONNECT from localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
Dec 31 17:20:02 ks_ postfix/smtpd: disconnect from localhost.localdomain[127.0.0.1]
If the port(s) is (are) already open, then try setting your SMTP port in your email client to 587 (plaintext or STARTTLS) or 465 (SSL).
