Adding accounts in the integrated pop3 server of slackware 13

How do I add an account so I can access my mailbox from M$ Outlook from a Windows 7 machine?
I am planning on using my ISPs smtp server for sending mail.

Or is there anything else I should be aware of?

Hi,

Every user you add in your system can use pop3 through a client like Outlook to access his mailbox.
You said that for outgoing mail you'll use your isp smtp server, but in order to receive mail, you'll need the email for your domain to be forwarded to your smtp server (the one in the screenshot). This can be done in the name server that is authoritative for your domain

Regards

I getting further, now I get this problem when trying to mail my server from gmail.com:

Code:
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.7.1 <user@domain.com>... Relaying denied (state 14).

Take a look again at my 1st post.
You need to setup:
1. The dns that is authoritative for your domain, so the MX record points to your smtp server
2. Your smtp server to accept mail for your domain.

You just add it to your domain. In your domain config file (usually somewhere in /var/named), after NS declarations, add a new line, something like
MX 10 yourmailserver
The 'named' directory does only contain a directory 'caching-example'.
Could you tell me in detail how to do this like.
1. Go to the following directory.............
2. In there you find a file names ..... and change the following text, and or add the following .........

Or is there a tutorial on how to do this somewhere?

Hi,

I don't think you're running the authoritative dns for your domain. This dns is the one (or more) that you've defined when you registered your domain. You can check it here
Maybe you can access if through a control panel to add/change records. Or you need to talk with the admin of that dns server

Work in progress!

Follow IntoDNS on Twitter


Category 	Status 	Test name 	Information send feedback
Parent 	Info 	Domain NS records 	Nameserver records returned by the parent servers are:

dns2.registrar-servers.com.   ['173.224.125.12', '69.64.46.77', '85.25.136.102']   [TTL=172800]
dns1.registrar-servers.com.   ['209.239.127.155', '69.16.244.24']   [TTL=172800]
dns3.registrar-servers.com.   ['188.138.96.213', '67.228.121.98']   [TTL=172800]

a.gtld-servers.net was kind enough to give us that information.
Pass 	TLD Parent Check 	Good. a.gtld-servers.net, the parent server I interrogated, has information for your TLD. This is a good thing as there are some other domain extensions like "co.us" for example that are missing a direct check.
Pass 	Your nameservers are listed 	Good. The parent server a.gtld-servers.net has your nameservers listed. This is a must if you want to be found as anyone that does not know your DNS servers will first ask the parent nameservers.
Pass 	DNS Parent sent Glue 	Good. The parent nameserver sent GLUE, meaning he sent your nameservers as well as the IPs of your nameservers. Glue records are A records that are associated with NS records to provide "bootstrapping" information to the nameserver.(see RFC 1912 section 2.3)
Pass 	Nameservers A records 	Good. Every nameserver listed has A records. This is a must if you want to be found.
NS 	Info 	NS records from your nameservers	NS records got from your nameservers listed at the parent NS are:

dns1.registrar-servers.com  ['69.16.244.24', '209.239.127.155']   [TTL=1800]
dns5.registrar-servers.com  ['95.211.9.35']   [TTL=1800]
dns3.registrar-servers.com  ['67.228.121.98', '188.138.96.213']   [TTL=1800]
dns2.registrar-servers.com  ['69.64.46.77', '173.224.125.12', '85.25.136.102']   [TTL=1800]
dns4.registrar-servers.com  ['184.171.163.90']   [TTL=1800]

Pass 	Recursive Queries 	Good. Your nameservers (the ones reported by the parent server) do not report that they allow recursive queries for anyone.
Pass 	Same Glue 	The A records (the GLUE) got from the parent zone check are the same as the ones got from your nameservers. You have to make sure your parent server has the same NS records for your zone as you do according to the RFC. This tests only nameservers that are common at the parent and at your nameservers. If there are any missing or stealth nameservers you should see them below!
Information 	Glue for NS records 	INFO: GLUE was not sent when I asked your nameservers for your NS records.This is ok but you should know that in this case an extra A record lookup is required in order to get the IPs of your NS records. The nameservers without glue are:
67.228.121.98
85.25.136.102
69.16.244.24
You can fix this for example by adding A records to your nameservers for the zones listed above.
Pass 	Mismatched NS records 	OK. The NS records at all your nameservers are identical.
Pass 	DNS servers responded 	Good. All nameservers listed at the parent server responded.
Pass 	Name of nameservers are valid 	OK. All of the NS records that your nameservers report seem valid.
Pass 	Multiple Nameservers 	Good. You have multiple nameservers. According to RFC2182 section 5 you must have at least 3 nameservers, and no more than 7. Having 2 nameservers is also ok by me.
Pass 	Nameservers are lame 	OK. All the nameservers listed at the parent servers answer authoritatively for your domain.
Error 	Missing nameservers reported by parent 	FAIL: The following nameservers are listed at your nameservers as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (see RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these nameservers are working.If they are not working ok, you may have problems!
dns4.registrar-servers.com
dns5.registrar-servers.com
Pass 	Missing nameservers reported by your nameservers 	OK. All nameservers returned by the parent server a.gtld-servers.net are the same as the ones reported by your nameservers.
Pass 	Domain CNAMEs 	OK. RFC1912 2.4 and RFC2181 10.3 state that there should be no CNAMEs if an NS (or any other) record is present.
Pass 	NSs CNAME check 	OK. RFC1912 2.4 and RFC2181 10.3 state that there should be no CNAMEs if an NS (or any other) record is present.
Pass 	Different subnets 	OK. Looks like you have nameservers on different subnets!
Pass 	IPs of nameservers are public 	Ok. Looks like the IP addresses of your nameservers are public. This is a good thing because it will prevent DNS delays and other problems like
Pass 	DNS servers allow TCP connection 	OK. Seems all your DNS servers allow TCP connections. This is a good thing and useful even if UDP connections are used by default.
Pass 	Different autonomous systems 	OK. It seems you are safe from a single point of failure. You must be careful about this and try to have nameservers on different locations as it can prevent a lot of problems if one nameserver goes down.
Pass 	Stealth NS records sent 	Ok. No stealth ns records are sent
SOA 	Info 	SOA record	The SOA record is:
Primary nameserver: dns1.registrar-servers.com
Hostmaster E-mail address: hostmaster.registrar-servers.com
Serial #: 2008080813
Refresh: 10001
Retry: 1801
Expire: 604801   1 weeks
Default TTL: 3601
Pass 	NSs have same SOA serial 	OK. All your nameservers agree that your SOA serial number is 2008080813.
Pass 	SOA MNAME entry 	OK. dns1.registrar-servers.com That server is listed at the parent servers.
Pass 	SOA Serial 	Your SOA serial number is: 2008080813. This appears to be in the recommended format of YYYYMMDDnn.
Pass 	SOA REFRESH 	OK. Your SOA REFRESH interval is: 10001. That is OK
Pass 	SOA RETRY 	Your SOA RETRY value is: 1801. Looks ok
Pass 	SOA EXPIRE 	Your SOA EXPIRE number is: 604801.Looks ok
Pass 	SOA MINIMUM TTL 	Your SOA MINIMUM TTL is: 3601. This value was used to serve as a default TTL for records without a given TTL value and now is used for negative caching (indicates how long a resolver may cache the negative answer). RFC2308 recommends a value of 1-3 hours. Your value of 3601 is OK.
MX 	Info 	MX Records	Your MX records that were reported by your nameservers are:

10   eforward3.registrar-servers.com   205.251.134.191 (no glue)
10   eforward2.registrar-servers.com   69.160.33.82 (no glue)
10   eforward1.registrar-servers.com   50.30.32.27 (no glue)

[These are all the MX records that I found. If there are some non common MX records at your nameservers you should see them below. ]
Pass 	Different MX records at nameservers 	Good. Looks like all your nameservers have the same set of MX records. This tests to see if there are any MX records not reported by all your nameservers and also MX records that have the same hostname but different IPs
Pass 	MX name validity 	Good. I did not detect any invalid hostnames for your MX records.
Pass 	MX IPs are public 	OK. All of your MX records appear to use public IPs.
Pass 	MX CNAME Check 	OK. No problems here.
Pass 	MX A request returns CNAME 	OK. No CNAMEs returned for A records lookups.
Pass 	MX is not IP 	OK. All of your MX records are host names.
Pass 	Number of MX records 	Good. Looks like you have multiple MX records at all your nameservers. This is a good thing and will help in preventing loss of mail.
Pass 	Mismatched MX A 	OK. I did not detect differing IPs for your MX records.
Pass 	Duplicate MX A records 	OK. I have not found duplicate IP(s) for your MX records. This is a good thing.
Pass 	Reverse MX A records (PTR) 	Your reverse (PTR) record:
27.32.30.50.in-addr.arpa ->  eforward1.registrar-servers.com
82.33.160.69.in-addr.arpa ->  eforward2.registrar-servers.com
191.134.251.205.in-addr.arpa ->  eforward3.registrar-servers.com
You have reverse (PTR) records for all your IPs, that is a good thing.
WWW 	Info 	WWW A Record 	Your www.dataduden.com A record is:
www.dataduden.com  [81.166.129.183] 
Pass 	IPs are public 	OK. All of your WWW IPs appear to be public IPs.
Pass 	WWW CNAME 	OK. No CNAME

Processed in 1.752 seconds.
What does this have to do with anything?

The above means that these are the smtp servers that can accept mail for your domain. You should edit this though your registrar and change it to point to your server.

The smtp server accepts mail? Aint that server for _sending_ mail?
Is there a script, or some easy to install software that does this work for me..?
I'm getting confused about this.

Hi,

The smtp server accepts mail and it can either deliver it locally if the recipient is local, or forward (send) it to the mail server of the recipient.
Slackware's default smtp server is sendmail. Doing a google search, you can find lots of howtos about configuring sendmail as a MX server for a domain.
Regarding a config tool, the only one that comes in mind is webmin.

Since you're new to this stuff, I suggest you to look at google apps and use google as the smtp server of your domain. So you don't have to bother configuring sendmail.

Regards
