    Hi Guys,

    i reinstalled my system now 6 times, i think now its enough i give up.

    also google and research in global forums doesn't helped me.

    please guys. help me!

    The Problem

    I cannot get receive any email

    my postfix conf:

    i tryd many many many and i saw the following maybe helpful things to correct this error.

    if i try to call the Maildir Shortcut on my FTP-Root i get an error
    if i call the shortcut on ssh it works
    maybe this isnt the problem, i just want to say all i now.


    my domains seems successful routet to my server

    mx are mail.domain.tld

    i can send emails and DONT get mailer daemon back
    if i want to receive emails i dont get any error just no mails
    if i disable the DNS on domain setup i cannot send or receive emails
    the sender get mailer daemon back
    if i enable DNS for the domain i see the entry on the DNS manager

    DNS ip = serverip
    mx = my DNS server ns30****.ovh.net
    i also tryd the domain and the ip for the mx server

    i can login but dont get emails. just only can send
    Maildir are always empty

    Maildir ist activated!


    Please guys, help me, where can be the problem?

    i use etch php5 and apache2 used the perfect installation tutorial from howtoforge

    might try a 3rd party MX lookup to make sure the mail is going to the correct server. I had same problem and only then did I realize the people I registered the name with had their own server as MX0. I think I found it by googling "MX lookup". Also try local emails (one system user to another) to see if you box works.

    i made a test...


    i made a mx test:

    Mail goes to correct server
    also i told that i don't get a mail delivery if i send an email to my server

    i found something on my pop3 config on courier

    maybe this is the reason?

    this isnt my cert

    I'd start debugging without SSL, just use plain ol' pop.

    I see the myhostname=localhost.
    I've never seen that before so I don't know if that will cause problems or not. Try
    myhostname = hostnamehere.$mydomain
    mydomain = domain.here
