Default Not receiving emails with postfix

Hi. Im using this tutorial to setup my mail server https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Po...asicSetupHowto

I send an email from yahoo to email@mydomain.com - it doesnt bounce but its not delivered either.


This is my main.cf

Quote:
# Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = no

# TLS parameters
smtpd_tls_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
smtpd_tls_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
smtpd_use_tls=yes
smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache
smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = mydomain.info
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = mail.mydomain.info, localhost.localdomain, localhost, mydomain.info
relayhost =
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8, 192.168.1.0/24
mailbox_command =
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all
home_mailbox = Maildir/
When I try to reload pop3d I get:
Quote:
root@domain:~# pop3d restart
/etc/courier/pop3d-ssl does not exist, forgot make install-configure?
- not sure if this is the reason.

In the mail.log there are only postfix entries and no IMAP or pop3 - does that mean they're not running? They're showing in ps aux ?

Yahoo tells you that because it might already have cached your domain records for today, depending on your TTL (mostly 1 day) it will be refreshed when the TTL expires. So try again tomorrow.

I don't think the reason is because they're cached. I have tried before a few days too and I got the same error.

Regarding POP3: what's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

Can you also check if the MX record of your domain points to the correct server?
