    My email is sending emails but not receiving emails. My ispconfig 3 is on a lxc container through proxmox 4. Any idea what could be the problem?

    Which errors do you get in the mail.log?
    Can you reach port 25 from outside?
    Is the MX record of the domain name set to the hostname of this virtual machine?

    What's the directory for the mail.log so I can post it? I can't reach port 25.

    The mail log is in the folder /var/log/

    I think it's blocked by my ips.

    I'd rather understand why certain providers block outgoing port 25 - but incoming?
    Open two shells to your server, one doing
    $tail -f /var/log/mail.info or $tail -f /var/log/maillog - depending on your operating system
    And on the other side restart postfix, also amavisd and dovecot services
    Are there any errors? Do you see something going on when trying to send mail to your server?

    I think it was block by my isp. I've moved my server to a datacenter.
