    We ordered a server with Exim, we have rebuilted it with Postfix, and created account [email protected] that we could send via them using squirrelmail, but when we try for example to send from my account of Hotmail via [email protected] we don t receive any.

    Please may I find some support about
    Thanks in advance,

    Can you please clarify if you send from your email account to Hotmail, or from Hotmail to your email account?

    Please check if the MX record of your domain is pointing to the correct server. You can check that as follows:
    dig mx

    I tested it and it was fine, but using exim I was able to receive messages, but when it is postfix no more messages. So can you please give an idea about this issue and the steps to resolve it

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?
