    Hi there.

    Bit of a strange one here and I can't seem to figure it out!

    When I am connected to my network via WiFi - I cannot receive email from my server unless I use it's internal IP address.

    If I try and connect to the server via the internet IP address - it doesn't work until I disconnect from WiFi.

    At first I thought it could be my router but all the ports are working fine...


    Does anyone know why this might be?



    Thanks


    :)

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

    Hi Falko - other than some connection limit rates that have exceeded (which has now been fixed) - all seems good.

    Outlook is still reporting this error though if I do not connect using local IP.


    Thanks for your help.

    Hm, maybe your router doesn't support loopbacks wgen you use Wi-Fi...
