    I think the maildir is only created after the first mail is received, send your self a mail and then test

    Mail from anywhere as long as the mail gets delivered. Check the logs to confirm the delivery

    just was doing that
    seen two erros
    fix one than restart postfix

    than i had a big error
    it was trying to connect to my WAN IP
    like it was replying it out to my router

    so i just rebooted
    hoping that it will fix the problem

    gotta learn how to an an DNS flush on linux

    maybe i do an 10th try at this
    cant get it to work i will stick to ISPconfig to handle all of the mail /web

    not a lot of skin off my foot about this
