    Hi.
    Im a new in this forum so you welcome for your patience :))
    I set up my home serwer with http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu-9.10-ispconfig-3 howto. All works fine for me except one think - Postfix don't receive emails from any external servers (sending is ok).
    I read all threads on this forum and find out to I must configure DNS records. I don't know what is correct way to do this.
    It's possible that is not a DNS reason. Can you help me to finr reason and fix it ?
    I don't paste any configs etc, please tell what you want and I paste it here :)

    Please check if the MX record of your domain points to your server. You can check that with
    Code:
    dig mx yourdomain.com

    Code:
    administrator@lemon:~$ dig mx hepson.pl
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.6.1-P1 <<>> mx hepson.pl
    ;; global options: +cmd

    Does hepson.pl point to your server? You can check that with
    Code:
    dig hepson.pl

    Yes, websites under hepson.pl are running correctly :)
    Code:
    administrator@lemon:~$ dig hepson.pl
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.6.1-P1 <<>> hepson.pl
    ;; global options: +cmd

    So 217.113.235.103 is your server's public IP?
    Is this server located in a data center, or maybe at home or in your office?

    Yes, it's my public IP. Server is located in my office, but I talked with my ISP, he said that the port 25 is blocking (so I send emails from another port). He don't said about any blocked ingoing ports.
    Sory for my english, it's no good but I hope that you understand what I mean :))

    That's what I assumed. :)

    I can send emails, but I can't receive them. I called to my ISP a few minutes ago, now port 25 is unblocked and my email account don't receive emails ;\
    Another ideas ? ;)

    Do you see any errors (or any activity at all) in your mail log when you send an email to that server?
