    Hi,

    I'm quite new to this, but I have my server set up and running for a while. But have noticed the following in my logs, I have several websites setup, and emails can be sent from the websites so it all seems to be working fine.
    I'm using Postfix and Dovecoat for your reference...

    But I'm wondering why I am getting this in my Mail Queue, the 74.125.224.72 IP resolves to Google, and I am using Google Apps for ALL emails, not sure where I am going wrong:
    Code:
    -Queue ID- --Size-- ----Arrival Time---- -Sender/Recipient-------
    34396114142 2708 Thu Jun 5 03:19:11 root@mashedcreative.com
    (connect to localhost.com[74.125.224.72]:25: Connection timed out)
    root@localhost.com
    and also in my log duplicates of the following, I have no idea what that French website is either:
    Code:
    Jun 8 22:55:17 postfix/smtpd[14935]: disconnect from unknown[94.247.232.147]
    Jun 8 22:55:31 postfix/smtpd[15199]: warning: 94.247.232.147: address not listed for hostname www.logastream.fr
    Jun 8 22:55:31 postfix/smtpd[15199]: connect from unknown[94.247.232.147]
    Jun 8 22:55:33 postfix/smtpd[15199]: warning: unknown[94.247.232.147]: SASL LOGIN authentication failed: UGFzc3dvcmQ6
    Jun 8 22:55:33 postfix/smtpd[15199]: lost connection after RSET from unknown[94.247.232.147]

    Use

    To see if Postfix is ready for SMTP-AUTH and TLS, run

    After you have established the connection to your Postfix mail server type

    Type

    to return to the system shell.

    Are you able to ping your server both with IP & hostname?
    Try to ping & revert accordingly.

    i am able to ping my server, by the way that website with the IP 94.247.232.147 isn't one of mine, looks like ISP Config is blocking the attack of some sort...
