Default [Resolved] Can not recieve mail

New to linux, and started playing with ISPConfig.

Followed perfect server fedora 9 guide. Install went fine with no errors, but got message
when setting up quota about being possibly truncated. It appears to be ok though.
Everything else seems to be working ok.

I can send email out but I get nothing coming in.
How to troubleshoot this? Commands to run?

Thanks in advance.

I have searched these forums, but nothing has worked. I just don't know
what I am looking for I guess.

Can you send yourself email from inside the network? For instance, when you set up a new user in ispconfig and give them a user name / email / etc, can you then (on the server) run these commands?

sendmail -v theusernameyousetup@thesiteyousetup.com

text goes here

ctrl+d (to send)

using "-v" will send the mail to your root account with verbose output.

Also this may seem obvious, but do you have port 25 opened and being forwarded to that box from your router / firewall?

also, can you do this:

telnet localhost 25

also tail /var/log/mail.log or /var/log/maillog ... something like that
