    Hi all,

    postfix can send mail but fails to receive mail.

    fixed ip address
    hostname - ser01.mydomain.com
    On router - ports 25/443/995/80/8080/etc. pointing to 192.168.0.218 (local ip of the server)

    I was following;
    Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 11.10)
    http://www.howtoforge.com/virtual-u...x-courier-mysql-and-squirrelmail-ubuntu-11.10

    building this server on ubuntu-10.04 (LTS) running on VM or Oracle VirtualBox


    1)
    sent 1st mail to server on yahoo mail.
    sales@mydomain.com

    Failed

    You need an A record for mail.mydomain.com. What does
    Code:
    dig mail.mydomain.com
    show?

    According to your Howto on;
    Code:
    13 Populate The Database And Test
    If you want to make entries in the other two tables, that would look like this:
    ...
    
    I already did
    Code:
    INSERT INTO `transport` (`domain`, `transport`) VALUES ('mydomain.com', 'smtp:mail.mydomain.com');
    
    mysql> SELECT * from transport;
    Code:
    +-------------+-----------------------+
    | domain      | transport             |
    +-------------+-----------------------+
    | mydomain.com | smtp:mail.mydomain.com |
    +-------------+-----------------------+
