    I followed the directions posted here:

    I can telnet to localhost port 25 without any problems, so everything should be working ok.

    The problem is... I don't know how to create a mail server like Then I'd like to create an address like [email protected] and.. you know the drill.

    I'd like to do this manually (without ISPconfig or any other scripts). Any pointers, links to tutorials?

    Everything I've come across so far is done with ISPconfig... :\

    I tried this, but when testing my settings in Outlook, the refuses my username.

    Any idea why?

    I fixed the "User Name was rejected" and now I can send e-mails, but I can't receive them.

    When I send the email to [email protected], a new file is created in /home/, but when I check the e-mail in Outlook... the e-mail doesn't download. As if I didn't send it at all.

    Any advice?

    Which pop3 / imap daemon do you have installed? You will have to install a maildir capacle pop3 / imap like courier or dovecot.

    I'm using pop3d, which is already installed on Debian.
