    If you had mod_security installed, that may triggers that you couldn't see mail.

    I installed mod_security on my server and after that I was n't able to acces any mail account and neither any website. I had to set mod_security to OFF to get all working normal again.

    I asked for help with this one to, but any answer.

    Did your SMTP Server works? Had you opened all required Ports correctly, in this case Port 25 (SMTP) and/or Port 465/587 (SMTPS). What SMTP you're using, internal at ISPConfig or an Open Relay SMTP Server like from your ISP?

    First look should be to find out your SMTP is working, required Port are open and reachable from the internet.
