    [Resolved] Can not recieve mail

    New to linux, and started playing with ISPConfig.

    Followed perfect server fedora 9 guide. Install went fine with no errors, but got message
    when setting up quota about being possibly truncated. It appears to be ok though.
    Everything else seems to be working ok.

    I can send email out but I get nothing coming in.
    How to troubleshoot this? Commands to run?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have searched these forums, but nothing has worked. I just don't know
    what I am looking for I guess.

    Can you send yourself email from inside the network? For instance, when you set up a new user in ispconfig and give them a user name / email / etc, can you then (on the server) run these commands?

    sendmail -v [email protected]

    text goes here

    ctrl+d (to send)

    using "-v" will send the mail to your root account with verbose output.

    Also this may seem obvious, but do you have port 25 opened and being forwarded to that box from your router / firewall?

    also, can you do this:

    telnet localhost 25

    also tail /var/log/mail.log or /var/log/maillog ... something like that

    I got it to work;

    my hosts file and hostname was all wrong.
