Default Email not working

Everything else is dialed in but I can't get the email working.

Fedora 8 followed the perfect server howto.

I can't even email from one account on the domain to another. Need to get this up and running asap. Appreciate any help team!

THanks in advance

What are you using to test? At what point does it fail? Is your server kicking back errors?

What does your mail.log report?

Have you already tried this to confirm your sasl config is good:

Also- check this thread.

Not exactly.

Did you actually try to authenticate a session via telnet localhost 25?

Try the telnet localhost at port 25, and go through to try to authenticate as in that link- line begins with:

AUTH PLAIN...

If you can successfully authenticate there, I'd try another mail client.

using the perl script i was able to authenticate using `internal` names
e.g.

web2_sales2 gives authentication success

but not with actual emails
sales2@mydomain2.com
or just
sales2

fails...

thanks again for your help!

Then you're good to go.

web2_sales2 is the user name that email account needs to use to authenticate...

I've sent emails to sales2@mydomain2.com and web2_sales2@mydomain2.com and nothing appears in roundcube. i'm not receiving or sending email via the server.
