    I would like to offer every domain on my ispconfig server their own pop3 mail account so their mail will be user@theirdomain. I would like to do this with pop3 so they can use outlook express or a similar program to access their mail. Could you sent me to a howto that would explain how to do this.

    Thank you in advance for your assistance

    I am using ispconifg3.0.0.8 on Debian Etch

    In your email client, you can use whatever address/IP is pointing to your server. Was that the question, or do you want to know what POP3 server software is installed?

    Looks ok. Are there any error messages in /var/log/mail.log?

    Nope. I test the configuration with a friend from outside of LAN, and he said he receive mail but can't send.

    Please check if your ISP blocks port 25.
