    Hi,

    Hope you are well, am quit sure this is not the correct way to ask for help however i need your help as i continue to familiarize
    myself with howtoforge.com.

    I recently followed the how to steps in setting up a Mail Server Setup With Exim, MySQL, Cyrus-Imapd, Horde Webmail On Centos

    I can send emails, but i cant receive emails at all, whether i send within the same domain or from other

    I have created an email account [email protected],

    if i send an email to to its self i.e from [email protected] to [email protected], the email is not delivered to the inbox

    when i check the /var/log/main.log

    2011-06-09 11:51:18 1QUaxS-0008Pj-5I <= [email protected] H=localhost [127.0.0.1] P=esmtp S=991 [email protected]
    2011-06-09 11:51:18 1QUaxS-0008Pj-5I lowest numbered MX record points to local host: mydomain.com
    2011-06-09 11:51:18 1QUaxS-0008Pj-5I == [email protected] R=dnslookup defer (-1): lowest numbered MX record points to local host
    2011-06-09 11:51:18 1QUaxS-0008Pj-5I Frozen

    What am i missing ?

    Kind Regards
    Titus Kevin

    Please try to add a line in the /etc/hosts file for mydomain.com that points to the IP address of your server.

    You need to add the domain name to you local_domains in exim.cf

    Code:
    domainlist local_domains = @ : localhost : localhost.localdomain : mydomain.com

    Thanks Till for your quick response that was already in place, i somehow solved the issue, by changing some values in the exim.conf file.

    Thanks again

    You are right topdog, i had

    domainlist local_domains = @ : localhost : localhost.localdomain : mail.mydomain.com

    instead of

    domainlist local_domains = @ : localhost : localhost.localdomain : mydomain.com
