    Falko helped me out and sending mail is now working on my email but I'm not receiving email. It says no new messages and every email i try and send to the address gets bounced back by postmaster. My server is using Dovecot and here is the configuration:

    protocols = pop3
    listen =
    ssl_listen =

    protocol imap {

    protocol pop3 {
    pop3_uidl_format = %08Xu%08Xv

    protocol lda {
    postmaster_address = [email protected]

    auth default {
    passdb pam {

    user = root

    dict {


    plugin {


    Sorry I couldn't remove all the comments my sed -e command didnt work. Does anybody know another way I can remove comments?

    NOTE - I am trying to get the email: [email protected] working using PAM. there is a unix user juddling.

    Here is my PAM file (/etc/pam.d/dovecot):

    auth required nullok
    account required

    also there are no errors In windows mail when I use the correct username and password ... just no mail.

    I've noticed you've got a donate option on your website, I'd be happy to donate ... if you get this going :D.

    More Infomation:
    When I try sending to the address: [email protected] it works fine but I want the address [email protected] working. The domain has an MX record pointing to the correct IP.

    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    , and what's in /etc/postfix/

    What's in your mail log when you send a mail to [email protected]?

    Do you use ISPConfig?
