Exclamation Emails not working [URGENT]

Hey guys,


I am having huge problems with getting the emails on the server working.. i followed the "pefect install" for cent os 5.1

i have added the account to outlook, i can email send an email from that account through outlook and it will send.. but i cant recieve anything.. its almost like the mailbox isn't working :S

I have read through many posts and still have no idea what is causing the problem..

I have also been looking through logs.. i thought it could be a DNS issue.. but it cant be, as i have solved the hostname and domain name issues...

Here a snippet from the /var/log/maillog

PLEASE NOTE: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX my servers ip. (i have masked it purposely)


Code:
Jun 24 15:19:50 assasrv02 postfix/tlsmgr[5830]: warning: cannot open entropy device /dev/urandomhome_mailbox = Maildir/: No such file or directory
Jun 24 15:19:50 assasrv02 postfix/tlsmgr[5830]: exiting to reopen external entropy source dev:/dev/urandomhome_mailbox = Maildir/

Jun 24 15:19:53 assasrv02 dovecot: POP3(web5_test): Disconnected: Logged out top=0/0, retr=0/0, del=0/0, size=0

Please let me know what you think the problem is?..

Please post the content of /etc/postfix/main.cf, but please without comments (lines starting with #).

In my conf I got the following line:
Quote:
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
In your case this should look similar to the following and maybe causing the error:
Quote:
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandomhome_mailbox
Maybe its also mixed up with the followign line that in my main.cf contains the home_mailbox containing "Maildir/" that is also mentioned in your errormessage, so maybe just a newline is missing?

Quote:
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
home_mailbox = Maildir/

mailbox_command =
In your config at line ---> tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandomhome_mailbox = Maildir/

thats the problem : there are 2 lines in one try to split it :
tls_random_source = dev:/dev/urandom
home_mailbox = Maildir/

hm?
