Question Mail trouble

Hi,

I seem to have some problems with my email, I can receive emails on my ISPConfig domains/accounts but I can't send mail, it doesnt reach the
destination, but there is also no message saying that it cant be deliverd.

Now I readed allready bunches of threads here with mail trouble but all seem very specific to their installations...

I do recall that with installing my Outlook I needed to set my outgoing SMTP
mail server to relay.skynet.be, can it be that this is also the trouble now, and if yes where do I need to change this?

Help please ???

If you set your smtp-server to relay.skynet.be in outlook ant this is not the name of your ISPConfig server, this problem has nothing to doe with your Server. Ask the owner of relay.skynet.be why you cant send emails.

If you want to send mails trough your server, you will have to set the realyhost in your postfix main.cf file.

If you want to use a relayhost for your server, have a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/sho...4&postcount=18

Question

Till and Falko,

Both thanks for replying, the question is do I NEED to use this, my provider Belgacom (Skynet) says that this (with relay.skynet.be) is the only way that I can use my off-web mail.

From Till's comment I understand that this is not true? and if not then what are the pro's and con's

I also am still not able to read my mail via i.e. outlook, I changed my POP to the IP of the domain 87.66.12.16, but I still get this:

Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): The specified server was found, but there was no response from the server. Please verify that the port and SSL information is correct.

Hope I got it all

Kind regards,
Web-worlds

Add this line to your /etc/postfix/main.cf to allow your server to relay trough the skynet gateway server:

Code:
relayhost = relay.skynet.be
To your pop3 problem:

Please dont use SSL encrypted pop3 to test your system. Disable SSL and when everything works we can checkout why SSL does not work with your outlook.

If this wont help, please post the output of:

Code:
netstat -tap

Hi Til,

The relay.skynet has been done, and that... for as far as I can see now, works, now for the outlook problem, on the advanced tab there is a possibility to switch on/off the SSL authentication, these are for both POP and SMTP off, but still I get the same errors, here is the netstat -tap output:

Ok, this looks fine so far. When you try to fetch email with op3, which errors or messages do you get in your mail logfile in the /var/log/ directory?

These messages are related to Postfix, not POP3. Please post POP3-related log lines.

BTW, you should replace check_relay_domains with reject_unauth_destination in /etc/postfix/main.cf and restart Postfix.
