Exclamation Connection dropped by IMAP server

Hi!!

i dont think the promblem is in the connection whit the mysql DB, becose if i put another nick to login or i put the pass wrong, the server answer me the username or password incorret...

Did you send a welcome mail to that account?

Are there any errors in the mail log?

You are unable to send to google because your port 25 outbound connection is being blocked by some kind of firewall or by your service provider.

Some service providers block port 25 and require that you use their smtp servers only, in that case you will have to configure postfix as a smarthost.
