I dont know what the deal is, I am just not getting mail.
I setup ispconfig on linux to move away from windows.
I am testing my mail on the linux box using an ip address and not a domain name. Just testing locally within the lan at first.
I am using email@example.com
. I have the account setup and it checks just fine, so the user and password seem to work out really good.
I sent a test email to itself in hopes that it would send to itself and receive it to let me know the interoffice round trip was a success.
It goes somewhere and doesnt come back.
Actually it goes here:
Apr 9 10:53:23 server5 postfix/smtpd: connect from unknown[192.168.1.100]
Apr 9 10:53:23 server5 postfix/smtpd: 35F23550362: client=unknown[192.168.1.100]

Apr 9 10:53:23 server5 postfix/smtpd: disconnect from unknown[192.168.1.100]
Apr 9 10:53:23 server5 postfix/local: 35F23550362: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, orig_to=<email@example.com>, relay=local, delay=0.06, delays=0.05/0.01/0/0, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to maildir)
Apr 9 10:53:23 server5 postfix/qmgr: 35F23550362: removed
I go and look and I see the messages here:
[root@server5 new]# pwd
[root@server5 new]# ls
Im confused at seeing <firstname.lastname@example.org>
And I dont know why I am not receiving it in the proper place. Why is it going to digerati? This is also the UID 500 account that I posted about earlier.
I CAME BACK FOR AN EDIT
One more note is that I couldn't stand how ispconfig wanted to put things like web3_u1 or whatever in from of all my usernames. I wanted simple username and password for stuff so they can enter in their email clients stuff like user@domain and not have to remember anything else.
I took care of this in ispconfig at the the MANAGMENT/SYSTEM CONFIG/SETTINGS/ISP MANAGER/ then on USER PREFIX, I just deleted what was there and all my names look correct.
Hope this is not the root of my problem.
