    hi,

    i did the perfect setup for debian sarge. i can send email o.k., but when receiving email, /var/log/mail.log shows "Relay access denied".

    Mar 6 01:09:41 trackandfieldphoto postfix/smtpd[15466]: connect from mail.sysmatrix.net[65.170.133.30]
    Mar 6 01:09:41 trackandfieldphoto postfix/smtpd[15466]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from mail.sysmatrix.net[65.170.133.30]: 554 <root@TrackAndFieldPhoto.net>: Relay access denied; from=<randy@trackandfieldphoto.com> to=<root@TrackAndFieldPhoto.net> proto=ESMTP helo=<mail.sysmatrix.net>
    Mar 6 01:09:41 trackandfieldphoto postfix/smtpd[15466]: disconnect from mail.sysmatrix.net[65.170.133.30]

    i restarted postfix, saslauthd, bind, and same errors. i followed the steps in the tutorial, and setup /etc/pam.d/smtp as i read on several threads.

    i wonder what i'm missing ?

    WOW THAT WORKED ! THANX ;-) now email is received in ~/Maildir/new.

    then i tried pop email (Mozilla/XP) from my laptop, and i get:

    Is MySQL running, and is the username/password correct? Please post the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap

    hi,

    i setup /etc/courier/authmysqlrc with the correct MYSQL_USERNAME and MYSQL_PASSWORD. still the login fails.

    "netstat -tap" displays:

    i found the problem, please ignore my last message. i had a mysql database with the exact same name 'provider' from some other server. i dropped it.

    now, when i try to used mozilla/xp to access pop3, it can't find he database 'provider':

    so i tried

    apt-get remove courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl
    apt-get install courier-imap courier-imap-ssl courier-pop courier-pop-ssl

    but i get the same errors. i guess i need the tutorial on how to setup 'courier- pop3'.

    ...randy in l.a.
