Ok here is the output you requested
iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

I am sorry I did not mean to confuse the SMTP (receive mail) with POP3 (send mail). However, I beleive I had both issues, but beleive the SMTP issue is now resolved So the issue that stands is sending mail. I am not able to login to the server using a pop3 client


Thanks

Happy

SMTP and sending refers to the same. If you have a problem with fetching emails, then it's a POP3 problem.

What's the exact error message you get in your mail client? Is the server in the same network as your PC, or is it a remote server?

Ok it looks like all is good and working. I changed my MX records so I will see. A couple of more questions
1. How do I not allow any email users to SSH to the mail server?
2. If I install SpamAssasain and AVClam is there anthing I need to configure?

Thanks

Happy

Ok just think I ran into a snag
the isp was host the email before witht he domain name of thexxx.net. The uesers email address is user@thexxx.net. I have a mx record set that refers all mail for thexxx.net to mail.thexxx.net. However, when I send mail from the server it send it out as user@mail.thexxx.net. When I was testing I was using user@mail.thexxx.net and also same for pop3 and this worked fine. Now that I have flipped the switch so to speak to a differnt mail server. I think I need to put in aliases for the users so that user@mail.thexxx.net is the also user@thexxx.net-how do I do that?

Does this make sense

Thanks
Happy

You must set the sender address in your email client (e.g. Outlook, Thunderbird, Evolution, ...).

Give your users a shell that doesn't allow them to log in with SSH. E.g., in /etc/passwd, change /bin/bash to /bin/false.

Ok, the aliases seem to be working. It looks like I just have to change the users pop3 email server. As far as locking users out of sshing to the server-this will not lock out the root account as well will it

Started changing all pop3 email server on desktop and also checking to make sure users can log into new server-found only a handful of people that could log into the server via pop3. Tried deleteing one user that was unable to login to server via pop3 and re-adding still not good. I tested my test account on this desktop and it worked fine. Any ideas?

Thanks

As long as you don't change the shell of the root user in /etc/passwd - no.

Any errors in your mail log? Did you get any errors when you re-added that user? How often is that user listed in /etc/passwd?

Yes there were login errors for the client that failed something like this fffff: then their public ip address they were coming from. I did not encounter any errors that I could tell when I readded this user. I only see the user once, but not sure how to confirm this via command line
