    Koala (Ubuntu 9.10) [ISPConfig 2]" to setup the ISP web hosting system, ISPConfig 2 and Squirrelmail, but I have problem when testing the email (in ISPConfig 2, create client, website, user & mail for squirrelmail etc before testing the email):

    1. in Ubuntu prompt, run "mail root" to send email message to my personal
    email address, to email address created in ISPConfig 2 for the user & mail. But the email message could neither be received from nor

    2. login into Squirrlemail webmail interface and sent email message to my
    personal email address, but the email message couldn't be received from as well.

    In all, the email message delivery into and out the email system hasn't been
    worked so far.

    It is much appreciated if anyone can help with this, e.g. the information
    guidance to identify and solve the problem; the approach to test each
    part/server in the email delivery chain to discover the issue; whatever
    helpful approach/method.
