ok guys that has been done. I still can only send and receive email internally. Is it possible that I will be able to send and receive email externally ie to proper domains. If so what needs to be done. thanks

Did you get any error messages when you send to external domains?
Have you enabled SMTP authentication in your email client?

Okay, I can now send mail to an external account (hotmail) only from the box that has the mail server on it. I can not recive mail from any external source. I have forwarded the ports on my router. Where do we go from here. Thanks

Have you thaought about installing ISPConfig on your server. Its easier to configure the email accounts with ISPConfig then doing everything manually in the config files.

I think you're talking about non-existing domains that you use for your email addresses? The emails won't arrive on your mail server because the domain doesn't exist...

falco, so i have gone as far as I can go. It has nothing to do with DNS? It is because I have not got a real domain name. If I registered a domain name do you think you guys could help me get it going.

Yes, you cannot send emails from the internet to non-existant domains.

At least we can try, of course there's no warranty.
