    Hi guys
    I would really appreciate any pointers on where to look next to get my Postfix/Dovecot running.
    I have it almost running but the situation i have is that Postfix claims the mail is sent but it never arrives( i can definitely send to the email address from elsewhere)
    If i try sendmail -bv kimberley.bottomley@virginmedia.com postfix says the mail is deliverable, and sendmail -v looks ok as well.
    below is the log output, the mail I received when using sendmail -bv and sendmail -v , and postconf -n output.

    I'd be grateful of any help on where to go next, i've run out of strings to pull.

    Have you looked at your queue file to see if the mail is being held for some reason. I am having a similar problem and am getting various error messages. should be here : usr/sbin/postqueue
