Default Email - Imap and Pop3

Basically speaking ISPconfig 2.2.* has pop3 only and ISPconfig 3 has pop3 and imap.

Is that correct?

Also for the pop3 to work correctly, "Quota" has to be installed and configured properly.

Is that correct?

I don't think the first is correct. ispconfig2 has pop3 and imap

I don't know if the pop3 needs quota installed, but the whole basis of ispconfig is that it is designed to run on a "perfect server" build, which does include quota.

Both statements are wrong. Whether a server has POP3 and IMAP depends on if you installed and started both services. That has nothing to do with the control panel.

Quota isn't needed for POP3.

Thank you for making that clear.

How can I tell if either one is working?

I understand that I have a LAMP on Ubuntu LTS and I'm using ISPconfig 2.2.36
with PHP Version 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.2

I have configured two email addresses using ISPconfig and configured my "Evolution" to receive one on my pc (using ubuntu) and the other one for my Nokia N900 (using linux-maemo).

None of the software says that I have any errors all the passwords are correct, but nothing arrives.

The N900 says it cant send email

I have sent email to an external email account from the pc and the email arrives.
but when I reply to it (from the external account), it doesn't come back to the pc.

What do I need to do to try and find out whats wrong, and how can I try to fix it ?

I'm not very good at the command line, in fact I'm a beginner.

Thanks

Please check if the MX record of your domain points to your ISPConfig server. You can check that by running
Code:
dig mx yourdomain.com
Also, are there any errors in your mail log?

I just asked my sys guy to add pop3 to the server and he said that its not secure, that its hackable and that I should not have it, I find it difficult to believe because its so common!

can you confirm his thoughts, either way! thanks.

(NOTE: I want a pop3 email account in my mobile phone, I cant seem to configure imap there.)
