    Have had this server up for a couple years. Gets email and sends mail fine inside the network.

    Web clients can send and receive mal.

    Remote clients can get email, but not send.

    Fedora 6 (I know old but so far been able to upgrade apps so why rebuild)
    Newest ISPConfig
    Newest Postfix.

    All done to Falkos Perfect setups.

    Have read and read, but most in this seem to end up being client issues. But I have tried many different clients in every possible way.

    If I don't require SSL

    If I do.

    In either case the mail doesn't go out.

    I'm out of ideas.

    Please make sure that you enabled smtp authentication in the client and that the client uses the same username and password for smtp auth that he uses for pop3.

    If this wont work, please compare the email setup of your server with the perfect setup for fedora 6, it might be that you have a typo anywere in the initial setup as you post sounds that you never used smtp auth before on this server.

    Well I have been cut and pasting most everything, just changing server names, so unless there is is a typo in the instructions they are identical.

    No, I used to have this working before I updated to a new server a couple years ago. Just given it is not critical to our operation I have ignored it, but now need to get it working for someone working remotely.

    Looking at the above log clips. What should a working system say? In the one where I required auth, does it not look like the auth is working?

    Is SELinux disabled?

    Is according to the config file as in the setup page.

    Is there a way to test that it is?
