    Hello, i moved my machine and had to change the IP of the box, everything worked fine before however now i cannot send or receive email from squirrelmail or via the pop3 on my phone. I can login just fine to squirrelmail but nothing in or out. I get no errors when sending, it shows in my sent box, but nothing happens. Any ideas?

    Are you able to send and receive emails with webmail? An easy test if the local mailsystem works is to login to webmail with a account hosted on the server and send a email to the same address that you used to login to webmail. The email shall arrive within a minute back to your account when the local mailsystem works.

    Post the error message(s) that you get in the mail log file when the problem occurs. The mail log file is in the folder /var/log/, it is named "mail.log" on Debian and Ubuntu Linux and named "maillog" on other distributions.
