Setting up mail


Hi,

I am having a little trouble receiving mail from outside. All local mail is delivered fine. I have postfix running.... is that enough to get mail from outside my LAN? If so what do I need to do to setup it up to receive mail.... if now what do I need to run in order to recevie mail from the outside.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards.

Make sure port 25 is forwarded to your mail server, especially if the server has only local IP address. If it has global one, check the firewall. It may be blocking it.
