Question Mail receiving errors


Hi all I have a problem where I can receive my emails when connected to an external network but cannot receive any emails when I'm on the same network as the Mail server itself.
I have checked the Firewall rules and I see no blocking of any IP Address.
Please help so I don't have to change networks just to collect mails

presumably you're not "receiving" emails here, you're going and fetching them, right? so check if you can telnet to the imap or pop3 service you are trying to reach. TBH it's really GOT to be a network issue, or potentially DNS if you need to use a proxy for normal web traffic.

so...

telnet mail.mymailhost.com 143

or

telnet mail.mymailhost.com 110

for standard imap and pop3 respectively, and see what that does.
