    Accessing FTP sites on ISPconfig with the Web-FTP menu works for me, but when I use a desktop FTP app (Fetch) it seems to log in and start getting folders, but then stalls and times out. Any ideas? Could it be my server not being able to handle it? Here's some specs:

    processor : 0
    vendor_id : GenuineIntel
    cpu family : 6
    model : 3
    model name : Pentium II (Klamath)
    stepping : 3
    cpu MHz : 300.005
    cache size : 512 KB

    Question 2: I can't send or recieve email from my sites. I set up squirrelmail fine and can login as various clients i set up, however none of my mail is received and visa versa. I use DynDNS so i thought the problem might be there and i added my URL name to the "Mail Exchanger" section of my Dynamic DNS service. Still no luck. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Have you tried both active and passive transfers in your FTP client?

    Any errors in your mail log?
    Also make sure your IP address isn't blacklisted (most dynamic IP addresses are): http://www.mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

    Yeah looks like I'm blacklisted on many of those lists. Is there any way to remove this? If I got a dedicated IP from my ISP would the problem still exist?

    Either put your server in a datacenter with Server IP address, or relay through the mail server of your ISP. ANY (semi)dynamic IP address on ADSL lines is either blocked directly or via balcklists. There is very little you can do thanks to millions of infected PC's.
