Connection timed out
 
Hi! Is anybody know why in outlook, I have setup my email account and if I click on TEST, I have the email from test and everything is fine. When I'm trying to send email to my hotmail account, I see that the email passed and is now in the sent folder but on my hotmail account I didn't receive the email. And if I try to send email from hotmail to my server, same thing happen, in hotmail I see the email in the sent folder and I have no error msg who come back after few minutes. Here is my mail:


Oct 9 21:34:05 Cronos postfix/qmgr[6416]: 8F92C37ED1: from=<webmaster@devXperience.com>, size=2445, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Oct 9 21:34:35 Cronos postfix/smtp[6457]: connect to mx2.hotmail.com[65.54.166.230]: Connection timed out (port 25)



Thanks for help,

It seems that your server is not connected to the internet. This might be a router or Firewall issue.

SeaWolf 10th October 2005 13:36

The firewall on Suse 9.3 is disabled and on the router theses ports are open: 21, 22, 25, 80, 81, 110 and 3306. Do I need more?

ftp, ssh, http, ispconfig, and mysql is working from the internet.

thanks,
Martin

Can you run
Code:

telnet mx2.hotmail.com 25
? If the command hangs, then I'm almost sure it is a firewall issue...

SeaWolf 10th October 2005 20:33

yes the command hangs, now where should I check to the suse firewall settings? Because I've DMZ my server on my router few minutes to try and it doesn't work, so do you thing the problem is from Suse?

Thanks,
Martin

There are some SuSEfirewall scripts in /etc/init.d. You can use them to stop the firewall (e.g. /etc/init.d/<scriptname> stop). Then try the telnet command again.

Now it's ok to send email, but I cannot receive them :confused: . If I send an email from my hotmail accout to my server, I just have an error email (later) in my hotmail box. Suse's firewall is off and all needed ports are open on the router.

any ideas? :(

Are you sure that the mail actually arrives on your system and not another one? Do you see anything in the mail log when you send a message from your hotmail account?
What's the exact error message you find in your hotmail account?

SeaWolf 13th October 2005 02:10

Here is the first one:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.

Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed.


and the second one:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to
connect successfully to the destination mail server.

Is the server housed in a datacenter? If naot and it is a DSL line, your provider may have blocked connections on port 25 to your server to prevent clients from housing their Servers at home.
