Usually DynDNS records propagate very fast (a few seconds to minutes)...

Did you ask your provider if they block port 25?

Did you check with
Code:
dig mx yourdomain.com
if the MX record is correct?

Please run
Code:
tail -f /var/log/maillog
and send a mail to your server (from an external account). Do you see any activity in the tail output?

I work for a hosting company. Usually when this happens it is because the Nameservers are not properly inserted at the registrar, You need to go to your registrar and make sure you have ns1.mydyndns.org and ns2.mydyndns.org as your nameservers here is alink for the actual nameservers. http://www.dyndns.com/support/servic...tom/howto.html

This should help you. If you want me to help you diagnose this problem I can just give me the domain name in this form your.domain.tld from dyndns.org and IWill diagnose and tell you how to fix it.

Let me know,
TexasTaz

TexasTaz thank you for your help.

I talked with dyndns.com their custom dns solutions is good for my own domain but I am using their sub domain like myname.ath.cx so it is a free of charge. They are giving MXrecord support for free domain. When I try to dig it seems ok. I think just mx record is enough for mail server. I dont need to pay for their custom dns because I dont need use my own domain.

This means that the mail doesn't even arrive at your server, so it's either because of wrong MX records or because port 25 is blocked (maybe a firewall?)...

What's the value of inet_interfaces from /etc/postfix/main.cf?

From a network external to your server run the command:

telnet myname.ath.cx 25

If your mail server is working correctly you should see the following output

220 myname.ath.cx ESMTP Postfix

What is the domain name involved let me help you with this. Once I get this I can find out what is going on and we can resolve it for you.
