Here in our Head Office we have a mail server w/ qmail services, I access it via apache qmail web page for adding and modifying e-mail accounts,
It also serves as the mail storage of mail users, Our mail exchange server is hosted by mx1.sampledomain.com.
Far away from here we have another branch (lets name it brnch2) that I have replaced the mail relay server (formerly Redhat 9 now in CentOS newly installed)
You never mentioned all these details before;i had to provoke you to post these details by asking those questions!!

Quote:
The relay server (CentOS) in branch2 should fetch mails from the qmail server here in Head Office, then once it is stored in the CentOS box the three PC users should download the mails.

the only error is in branch2 the three PC can't get the mails from the CentOS box, seems like the CentOS box can't deliver the mails to the client pc I assumed
Now you must have followed some guide or links i gave you!Can you let us know what did you follow?
And when you invoke the
Code:
#fetchmail
command what happens now tell us!!

Yes I've read and followed all, I tell again:

I recently tried to install Centos 5 to our new branch, it serves as a firewall with squid services and mail relay client for 5 mail users,

We have a mail server in head office that has a qmail services for adding and editing mail clients.

The problem is.... I don't know the next step in configuring the Centos after I finished the fetchmail configuration, the /root/.fetcmailrc looks fine and really it does grab mails in our head office but it does not deliver mails to the 5 mail users in the local network, the mails can onlly be viewed in the webmin with its yahoo-like mail interface under the Sendmail Settings, somebody told me that I should configure the postfix or sendmail but Iam really confused on which one.


please can somebody help me.
