    Debian Wheezy - Cannot receive any eMails

    HI,
    I have installed ISPConfig 3 exactly like the howtoforge.com tutorial says for Debian Wheezy (Apache2,Bind,Dovecot) over a year ago i did the same with Debian Squeeze (Apache2,Bind,Courier) and had no problems but with the Debian Wheezy tutorial i can't receive any eMails. How can i fix this problem? i'm out of ideas. :(

    If i use the eMail test tool on UltraTools then i get this error:
    MX Record Target: 1 server1.domain.tld
    IP address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Status: Connect failed
    Test duration(ms): Timed out...

    I would check the firewall first, make sure port 25 is open to the world.

    You could also check that SMTP is listening on port 25 by running netstat -lptn|grep smpt and looking for something on port 25, similar to the following ...

    tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:25 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 4670/smtpd
    tcp6 0 0 :::25 :::* LISTEN 4670/smtpd

    If nothing is returned, nothing is listening and you may need to manually start smtpd (service postfix start on Debian with Postfix).

    Nothing is returning if i do "netstat -lptn|grep smpt" but i can send mails to other email addresses with my eMail program but i can't receive any eMails.

    I also found this in the syslog:
    Code:
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 dovecot: pop3-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts in 0 secs): user=<>, rip=::1, lip=::1, secured, session=<GTRQVGv7jwAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAB>
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected (no auth attempts in 0 secs): user=<>, rip=::1, lip=::1, secured, session=<Z1NQVGv7YQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAB>
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 postfix/smtps/smtpd[15745]: warning: hostname localhost does not resolve to address ::1: No address associated with hostname
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 postfix/smtps/smtpd[15745]: connect from unknown[::1]
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 postfix/smtps/smtpd[15745]: SSL_accept error from unknown[::1]: lost connection
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 postfix/smtps/smtpd[15745]: lost connection after CONNECT from unknown[::1]
    Jun  9 20:25:01 server1 postfix/smtps/smtpd[15745]: disconnect from unknown[::1]
    And my hosts file looks like this:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain localhost
    127.0.1.1	server1.domain.tld   server1
    
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    And my interfaces file looks like this:
    Code:
    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface lo inet6 loopback
    
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    iface eth0 inet6 static
        address xxxx:xxxx:x:xx::1
        netmask 64
        #gateway IPv6 is not needed here, since this is automatically defined.
