    Hello,
    Here is my system:
    1- Ubuntu 12.04 server.
    2- single server setup. as per http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ot-ispconfig-3
    3- WAN is 2 static IP addresses.

    What I can do:
    1- Can access ISPConfig 3 Control Panel from any public computer.
    2- Can see the website test page of my domain after setting it up in ISPConfig 3.
    3- Can access Squirrel mail interface but cannot send or receive e-mails.

    here is the log error from mail.log

    First you should test if the mail sytem of the local local server is ok:

    1) Create a email domain in ispconfig.
    2) Create a email mailbox in ispconfig.
    3) Login to webmail (squirrelmail) on your server with the email address of this mailbox.
    4) send a email from within the webmail client to the address that you used tologin to webmail and check a minute later if the email shows up in the webmail account. So if you lgged in with tom@yourdomain.tld, then send in webmail a test email to tom@yourdomain.tld.

    if 3) or 4) did not work, then please post the error messages that got added in the mail.log file for these actions.

    There are some ssl problems, either the ssl cert is broken or postfix is not configured for ssl.

    Please post the /etc/postfix/master.cf file from your server.

    Please change the line:

    #submission inet n - - - - smtpd

    to:

    submission inet n - - - - smtpd

    and the line:

    #smtps inet n - - - - smtpd

    to:

    smtps inet n - - - - smtpd

    and then restart postfix:

    /etc/init.d/postfix restart

    http://www.thefanclub.co.za/how-to/how-secure-ubuntu-1204-lts-server-part-1-basics

    I am getting the following error when i do aache restart after installing the ssl class 1 as per http://www.howtoforge.com/securing-...-free-class1-ssl-certificate-from-startssl-p2

    The interesting thing is everything is working although I see the following error.

    [Wed Apr 24 23:45:25 2013] [warn] NameVirtualHost *:443 has no VirtualHosts

    Thats ok and not an error. The messages tell you that you can add additional vhosts with * in your configuration for port 80 and 443.
