Default Problem recieving mail

I am quite pleased with ispconfig. It is truly an amazing program. However, I am having trouble receiving e-mails in my inbox. This holds true using the webmail interface and outlook. It appears as if they are not being properly delivered to the users e-mail box. I am able to send main from the account so SMTP works perfectly. Also, no e-mails are getting bounced back.

My set up is as follows:
Fedora Core 4 perfect
MTA Postfix
logs are enabled
maildir is disabled
spamfilter is enabled

on the email account:
catchAll-email is enabled
MailScan is enabled
Keep Copy is enabled
Spamfilter is enabled
Antivirus is enabled
Span Strategy accept
spanHits: 5
Rewrite subject is enabled

When I viewed the log files they are not giving me any errors and the server is recieving the e-mails.

Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

Can you try to send a mail to the system and at the same time have a look at the mail log and post the relevant excerpt of the log here?

looks like hotmail is having a little problems recieving any mail. Any ideas on how to fix that? increase time out time?

I am sending the mail message from webstergd@vcu.edu to webmaster@axiompvp.com

I hope this is the mail log you are looking for. If you would like another log to be sent please just ask. THank again :-)

For hotmail you will have to add SPF records for your domain at the authoritive DNS Server, otherwise hotmail refuses your smtp connections.

Please check if the domain that shall receive the email is listed in /etc/postfix/local-host-names (without www) and the email address is listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable

Have a look at this thread: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=802

For help on how to create an SPF record - the SPF record form in ISPConfig is very similar to http://www.openspf.org/wizard.html?mydomain=&x=26&y=5.

Thank you both for your reply. Below is the content in the virtusertable and also local-host-names

virtusertable:
webmaster@www.axiompvp.com webmaster
@www.axiompvp.com webmaster
webmaster@axiompvp.com webmaster
@axiompvp.com webmaster

local-host-names:
localhost
www.axiompvp.com
localhost.www.axiompvp.com
localhost.axiompvp.com
axiompvp.com

Everything looks ok to me. Any chance you see anything?
