Default ISPConfig - Mail dosen't work

Hi ...

I own the website www.klippinge-it.dk ... But my pop3 service can't be reached from outside of the server.

When i telnet it I get at the serveradress:
Trying 83.95.198.14...
Connected to 83.95.198.14.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 klippinge-it.dk ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)

But I still can't reatch it from outside...

Anyone knowing how to reatch it...

Is your port 110 open on your router / filrewall, and if so, are you forwarding it to the correct server IP on your lan?

Your telnet outpot looks like you connected to postfix on port 25, postfix is the SMTP server and not the pop3 server.

The pop3 daemon listens normally on port 110, please check that you forwarded port 110 from your router to your server as edge suggested.

It's directly ported to the internet ... No router :=) ...

And all ports are open.

Sorry about the mistake...

Here is the 110:
Klippinge-IT:~# telnet 83.95.198.14 110

Trying 83.95.198.14...
Connected to 83.95.198.14.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.


//Mathias

This looks fine so far. And you can not connect to it with a email client? Make sure that you did not enable SSL (pop3s) in the mailclient, because thats another port.

Please post the output of:

iptables -L

It's working for me:

Code:
mh1:~# telnet 83.95.198.14 110
Trying 83.95.198.14...
Connected to 83.95.198.14.
Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Hello there.
quit
+OK Better luck next time.
Connection closed by foreign host.
mh1:~#
I guess it's your desktop firewall that's causing problems. Try to switch it off and test again.
