Is your MX record in the DNS set correct for that domain?

i believe so,.. i had ispconfig do it.

Winged off- create DNS & Create DNS-MX
Am not sure.. what else to do!

I checked With DNS report and everything checked out,.. except mail--

HTML Code:
ERROR: I could not complete a connection to any of your mailservers!

mail.domain.com: Timed out [Last data sent: [Did not connect]]

If this is a timeout problem, note that the DNS report only waits about 40 seconds for responses, so your mail *may* work fine in this case but you will need to use testing tools specifically designed for such situations to be certain.
any ideas?

Okay. The best thing to do is post your domainname, so that some of us can have a look at the DNS records.

If you do not want to do this (understandable), than did you set the namservers at the place where you registered the domainname to the correct IP(s)?..

An other way of seeing a lot of usable info for you is by using http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsre...our-domain.com (make sure that you replace the your-domain.com)

Did you follow one of the perfect setup guides? Make sure that the Maildir checkbox in the ISPConfig server settings is disabled.

Code:
[root@server1 ~]#  /etc/init.d/postfix restart
Shutting down postfix:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting postfix:                                               [  OK  ]
pretty sure it was,.. anyway i just restarted it to be sure.

As far as i know,.. everything should be ok. Since only errors i get back say that the mails have been delayed. I have disabled anti virus & spam filters!!
Whats missing ?
