    I found the following howto to set up my own mail server, I think i do everything rigth, step by step, but now when i ttry to login the mail server via squirrelmail, the server answer me this error:

    "Connection dropped by IMAP server."

    i dont think the promblem is in the connection whit the mysql DB, becose if i put another nick to login or i put the pass wrong, the server answer me the username or password incorret...

    If you can help me, i would really appreciate it a lot ! thanks!!

    You are unable to send to google because your port 25 outbound connection is being blocked by some kind of firewall or by your service provider.

    Some service providers block port 25 and require that you use their smtp servers only, in that case you will have to configure postfix as a smarthost.
