    I've been trying to get a MailServer set-up, still with no luck. I do believe it has todo with the DNS setting on my GoDaddy account. I've followed the "HowTo - Debian3.1 Sarge - PerfectSetup(ispconfig). and installed IspConfig. I've tried to send an e-mail from the webmail package, to a hotmail account.

    This is what my /var/log/mail.log returns:
    server1 courierpop3login: Connection, ip=[::ffff:]
    server1 courierpop3login: LOGIN, user=mike, ip=[::ffff:]
    server1 courierpop3login: LOGOUT, user=mike, ip=[::ffff:], top=0, retr=0, time=0
    server1 postfix/smtp[7470]: E17ED57D83: to=<[email protected]>,[], delay=1, status=sent (250  <250  <[email protected]> Queued mail for delivery)
    server1 postfix/qmgr[5019]: E17ED57D83: removed

    Here is my Netstat -tap output:
    Active Internet connections (servers and established)

    and finally, here is a screenshot of my GoDaddy, DNS configuration:

    Hope the error is in all that information, thanks for everyones help again.

    --Edit. Yes I am aware both NS server's point to the same IP, I havn't gotten my second server setup yet *hardware wise*

    First, the excerpt from your mail log says, that the message has been delivered correctly to hotmail.

    Is your server hosted in a datacenter or do you run your server at home behind a DSL line or something similar.

    For now it's here at my house with my other rackservers:

    --Edit: The problem isn't just sending them from my server, it's also recieveing. I recently tried to send one from hotmail and postmater returned the following:

    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to
    connect successfully to the destination mail server.

    This might happen because of Hotmail's anti spam policy, for example if you have a dynamic IP address or don't have proper SPF and PTR records for your domain. Please try to test with a non-Hotmail account - the best would be to test with an email address that is not hosted by Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. as all free-mailers have some anti-spam policies that might cause problems.

    ok that would explaine why I can't sent out from the server, But why can't I recieve e-mails?
