    Hi everyone,
    i desperately need help here.
    i suspect postfix has tls on or something.
    everytime i try to connect on my smtp port
    i'm shown a blank screen.
    the mail client can connect to smtp port
    but also gets stuck in the connect state
    i can connected but i cant do anything!

    i already tried to switch off tls and all that
    but i dont know whats wrong.
    can anyone help me please?

    Do you get any messages or errors in the mail.log?

    What system do you have?
    You should have some file beginning with mail
    in /var/log

    on debian its mail.info, mail.err, mail.log
    on centos / rhel it is eg maillog

    Hi everyone, just wanted to say very very big thank you, for putting in the effort to help me.
    Greatly appreciated.
    I solved the problem by typing postfix check
