    Hello

    I have installed a mail server using this tuturial. The problem I'm having is that I can't send mail via client(outlook, thunterdbird).
    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-12.04-lts-apache2-bind-dovecot-ispconfig-3
    I have installed roundcube instead of squrelMail.


    My setup is the folowing:

    The thing is, that I can send and recive e-mails from roundcube to an gmail, yahoo etc account. The problem is when I send a mail from a client(outlook, thunterdbird).

    -When I'm adding the account to outlook I have to put the local ip adress (mail server 192.168.10.22) of the server into the incoming & outgoing SMTP server. It cannot find the incoming and outgoing mail server(mail.example.com).
    -I have put the MX record at my isp to point to my ip. If I do na "nslookup" or "dig mx" it returnes the correct ip(exp. 123.123.123.123).
    -On my firewall I have forwarded port 25 to my internal ip (mail server 192.168.10.22). -Localy I can telnet to 192.168.10.22 over port 25.

    Do I need a record on my local DNS server for mail.example.com pointing to 192.168.10.22?



    I am very grateful for any help

    what error is in your /var/log/mail.log when you get the client error?
    Please post that log and postfix main.cf

    You need also forward Port 25 from your Modem/Router to your internal server (192.168.10.22).
