    The mail log is in the directory /var/log and is named either mail or mail.log or a similar name.

    Looks ok. Did you disable Maildir in ISPConfig (Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email)?

    You must disable it because your POP3 daemon uses mbox format.

    Are you sending from a dynamic IP address or DSL line or dial-up account? If so, most email providers like Hotmail or Yahoo will mark your emails as spam.
    You should also check the spam blacklists, maybe your IP address is listed there.
    Do you have proper PTR and SPF records for your domain?

    What do I need to disable??
    Actually am sending emails from another IP address 204 for ISP server and 202 is for router and assigned a dinamic ip 192.168.1.2.

    But am not able to receive any emails, even if I send it from webmail.

    Also since I activated firewall option on ISPConfig getting hard time in get right pages, should I disable??

    What can I do?? :confused:

    Maildir.


    192.168.1.2 is a local IP address not visible to the net. I'm talking about your public IP address

    Disable it until we get your other problems fixed.

    Ok, am on it, I went to a site and check for spam and I got this:

    Host-name: WARNING: Reverse-DNS missing

    What does mean??

    You need a PTR record for your domain, that'S a record that maps your IP address to your domain.
    Take a look here to learn more about PTR records: http://langfeldt.net/DNS-HOWTO/BIND-9/

    The PTR records can not be set in ISPCOnfig. PTR records belong to the IP and they where managed by the ISP that gave you the IP. You will have to ask your ISP to set the PTR for the IP for you.

    Don't use IP addresses for "Default NS1" and "Default NS2". You must use FQDNs here!

    My ISP Provider is asking me how do I want to have the PRT registration!!
    What options should I tell them.
    My NS1 is 200.89.230.204 and NS2 is 200.89.230.203 and I got 3 more ip's available.

    Thanks

    You must let 200.89.230.204 point to a domain/FQDN that in turn points to 200.89.230.204. The same goes for 200.89.230.203. It doesn't matter which domain/FQDN.

    I didn't get it!!
    I got hosted educandote.edu.co, educandote.net, educandote,info, educandote.tv, asesoriasit.net and asesoriasit.info is set to nameservers but there is no web site.

    Should I tell him 200.89.230.204 point to FQDN educandote.edu.co i.e.??
    200.89.230.203 point to FQDN educandote.net i.e.??

    Thanks again!!

    For example, educandote.edu.co points to 200.89.230.204.
    Now you create a PTR record that lets 200.89.230.204 point back to educandote.edu.co.
