Postfix, POP3, Webmail Setup


I have been trying to setup an email server. I have a domain name, and the DNS/MX records are pointed correctly. I installed Postfix, and Courier-IMAP. When I use outlook to connect to my server I get an error; "The connection to the server has failed. POP3....etc"

So I am assuming my POP3 is not configured correctly but I am not sure what else to do. When I send an email with outlook, it goes through without an error but I never recieve the email.

Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Is popd daemon running? If you installed imapd, shouldn't you be connecting to your server via an imap connection? Or are you setting up both?

pop3 = port 110
imap = port 143

Error messages? What happens if you try to start it on its own? And yes, you will need both if you want to setup a webbased email app and also get it thru pop3 accounts.

Courier-Imap usually works best when starting it in the xinetd or inetd daemon and configuration script, etc.

it looks like my /etc/xinetd.conf does not have anything in there for courier. how would i set that up?

also, i just tried to telnet to port 110 and it refused the connection.
