    Start with looking at the /var/log/mail.log file, and see if you find any errors in it.

    I don't really see any errors, or anything that actually says "error"

    I just received a test email to my gmail account, that I sent five hours ago.

    I have tried a couple of more test emails, since yesterday, nothing has gotten through.

    Where can I check my smtp, maybe I didn't fill it out right.

    My windows email/squirrelmail server is working fine, so I know I am not blacklisted.

    Where do I locate these records?


    Thanks

    Send a test email out while watching your maillog. You should see an smtp entry for that email in the log and should see a "mail accepted for delivery" and another "stat=sent". If anything else then look for potential errors.

    Could your ISP be blocking port 25. Mine just started a couple of weeks ago so I have to relay through their smtp server.

    I will put my windows back online to test one more time.

    Then I will put my linux/ispconfig back again and watch the mail.log file.

    I have been using my ISP's smtp for years to get around my blocked port 25.

    How do I pull up my smtp for me to check and edit?

    Not sure what you are asking. If you are asking how do you see if your mail was sent properly you need to check your mail log. On my server it is in /var/log/maillog

    If you are asking how to verify your relay is set up correctly you need to check the /etc/postfix/main.cf file.

    Hi,

    Which line do I put my smtp server into on that file? (/etc/postfix/main.cf)

    Perfect, just perfect, merlincc.

    Cannot thank you enough, merlincc.

    My port 25 isn't blocked, it is that my ISP does not allow relaying. So I just put my ISP's smtp server into the relayhost and it worked.


    Just what I needed.
