    Hello,
    I'm new to this, so please bear with me. This is my first time (for setting up a server that is :))

    I went through this great tutorial: "The Perfect Server - Debian Lenny (Debian 5.0) [ISPConfig 3]"

    Everything works except from sending emails. This goes for both using PHP and squirrel webmail. I can however, recieve emails and read them using squirrel.

    I've got a static IP and I've checked it at http://mxtoolbox.com -- it returned: "Listed: 0 time(s)", so far so good.

    I've set the server up using accelerator.cern.no -- The place where I've registered the domain I've put this address as the mx host and set priority 1.

    In ISPConfig 3 I get the following under "Monitor - Show Mail-Queue" (removed some email + entries):
    Code:
    -Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------

    As you can see, I'm unable to send emails to my gmail account. As I stated earlier I'm fully able to get emails from gmail to my server.

    I hope some of you can share your time and experience with me.

    Thank you very much for your time and attention.

    Some updates

    I've figured out that my ISP blocks outgoing on port 25. I figured this out by doing:

    "telnet smtp.cs4all.nl 587" (works)
    "telnet smtp.xs4all.nl 25" (doesn't work)

    What I've done is to add the following line to "/etc/postfix/master.cf" and restarted it after doing so.

    Code:
    587 inet n - n - - smtpd
    This doesn't help, unfortunately. My ""/etc/postfix/main.cf" looks like this (all commented lines removed):

    The emails in queue is still not being sent, as the mail server is still trying to connect to other servers using port 25.

    Furthermore, I'm not able to send mail using a client like thunderbird. I've clicked "TLS, if enabled" but I'm not sure what to put in the username field for authentication.

    I've tried both the email, [email protected] and the password I set in ISPConfig. But the server does not seem to want to authenticate me correctly with those details. What login information should I use?
