qmail doesn't work


Hi.

I have a qmail installation on my server.

When I connect to the pop3 server with a mail client I don't get any error, but I don't receive messages.

I think I have to change something in qmail config files such as me, locals, defaultdomains ecc

Can anyone help me?

http://www.qmailrocks.org/ that link always gets posted when someone has a qmail problem :P

it has a whole installation guide, and access to mailing lists for it.

Would be a good place to start, without any error messages/logs it will be hard for people to advise, there's no 'magical soltuion' to get things working.

if your mail server is live, check MX record.
Your relay domain file is here /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts

good luck
