    Hi, I'm new to the world of Linux. I'm trying to build a mail server and found this great website with various tutorials. I followed all the steps in the Perfect Server tutorial and have ISPConfig3 installed and running (after several trials). I can login to my email account through SquirrelMail and successfully send emails but not receiving any, even sending email to myself. I tried the email dossier and it saids connection timed out on smtp session. I guess I haven't set it up properly...

    I'm running this mail server behind a router. I have www.mydomain.com pointed to the static IP at my router, then port 25, 110 forward to my server (192.168.0.100). I tried play around with ISPConfig3 but have no idea what to do. Do I need to include the static IP somewhere in the server in order to receive email properly? Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

    Now, I can receive emails from myself and between accounts within the mail server but still can't receive emails from the outside. Any suggestions?

    Have you added MX records for your domains ?

    Any errors in your mail log? Also make sure that your ISP doesn't block port 25.
