Telnet localhost and telnet not from localhost for IMAP services


Hello,

I've a server @ the matrix and I have a mail probleme :|

I've made a mail account for exemple toto@mydomain.com

when I'm logging using my shell and if I do :

root@thematrix [~]# telnet localhost 143
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
* OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4REV1 LOGIN-REFERRALS AUTH=LOGIN] localhost IMAP4rev1 2002.325-cpanel at Wed, 15 Oct 2003 09:56:36 +0200 (CEST)

there is no probleme but if I do it not from localhost :

[root@maison root]# telnet mail.mydomain.com 143
Trying xx.yy.ww.zz...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection timed out

of course mydomaine is pointing to my server there is no probleme with dns ...

I've no problems to telnet mail.mydomain.com 21 to have FTP service

I should set up the IMAP service to answer from outside but how ???

thank you for your help

Seb

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
