Smile Cant receive Emails, but they are in the Maildir!!

Hi all

I dont know what do now. I have setup my postfix from new and IPSConfig also. I work with Maildirectorys and Postfix. The Problem is, sending is no problem with webmail and outlook and the Emails arrived corretctly in the Maildir from the appropriate User and i can read it from Webmin.
If i try to receive the mails, neither outlook nor webmail will recieve any mails. There is no spamfilter, no antivirus, no firewall between them. All systems are on one Server with Hostname predator.h-wd.ch (Apache, ISPConfig, Webmail, PHP, mySQL, Bind etc...).
Enclosed is the main.cf and the logfile

main.cf: www.h-wd.ch/main.cf.txt
Maillogfile: www.h-wd.ch/log.txt

please help, i have no idea what this could be or what to do....

Lightbulb Hello Pharao,

Yes I had the same problem and Dovecot seems to solve everything. Whether you have it installed or not we need to know what is running on your system and what is not. What is the result of
netstat -tap
If you are currently using ipop3 and imap for ports 110 and 143 you need to shut off xinetd and start dovecot.

To stop ipop3
chkconfig ipop3 off
To stop xinetd
/etc/init.d/xinetd stop
To check if you have dovecot installed
dovecot --version
If it is not installed, install it by
apt-get install dovecot
Disable ipop3 and imap at startup by editing /etc/xinet.d/ipop3 and /etc/xinet.d/imap change disable = no to:
disable = yes
Finally start dovecot
/etc/init.d/dovecot start
