    [SOLVED] mail questions

    ok, my domains are now running like they should and first thing i tried is to set emails for domain name.

    1. installation was done by tutorial debian 3.1
    2. nothing else was changed in any other config files..
    2. maildir under managment is activated
    3. pop3 & smtp services are running
    4. pop3 & smtp ports are open on both firewalls, linux and hardware firewall
    5. new site is created with Mailuser Login enabled
    6. new user is created with email
    7. dns records for mail are set for domain name

    full domain name + pass = doesn't work
    username + pass = doesn't work

    trying from client Thunderbird:
    Connects to pop3 and then i get error: Sending of username did not succeed. Mail server mail.domain.tpl responded: Unknown AUTHORIZATION state command

    What on earth am i missing here?

    Also tried: https://www.domain.tpl:81/mailuser and it doesn't work...
    btw, what is this https://www.domain.tpl:81/mailuser ?? how is it different then /webmail/ ??

    Edit: i jsut sended email to this email address and well, i got no error back to gmail about not working so that's good. Just need to figure it out why on earth i can't login..

    ok, since it seems that server can accept mail, its probably problem in this:

    ;              IN      MX
    ;; ANSWER SECTION:       86136   IN      MX      10 [B][/B].
    Now i just need to find out where that name came from and how to fix this :D claims to be non-existent host

    Forgot to install Courier-IMAP/Courier-POP3, that *Please note: text got me confused..

    OK, now i can login just fine, receiving mail is working... sending not yet :)

    Edit: Actually, sending mail also works... GMail a bit slow today for me i guess :)

    Still not working currently: thunderbird...

    lol this look like i have a blog here, posting my own solutions to myself... I'm just waiting for falko or till to send me a warning for not spaming boards so much :D
    Sorry guys..

    Any errors in he mail.log?
    Did you enable SMTP Authentication in Thunderbird?
    Please try to deactivate SSL / TLS for sending emails in Thunderbird.
