I have a dedicated server running Red Hat 7.2 with Sendmail and Webmin and I am trying to set it up so I can send/receive email from Outlook to an account set up on the server. I've followed the steps on Rackspace.com's support site at: http://support.rackspace.com/cgi-bin...NUX-*-*%20mail
but it isn't working. Anytime I try to send an e-mail from my ISP's POP3 account to the one I set up on my server, ends up bouncing back.
I a domain name pointing to an IP addresses on my dedicated server. The main IP address of the server does not have a domain name pointing to it yet, becasue I'm waiting to set everything up correctly before I point the domain to it. Everything else is working fine, HTTP, SSH, and FTP. Here is what I have in my DNS for another domain name that is pointing to the server:
IN MX 10 mail.domain.com.
mail IN A 209.15.XX.XXX
I have the domain entered in the Host Addresses section under in Hardware in Webmin. Under Address Mapping in Webmin I have firstname.lastname@example.org
entered as the address and my username 'website' as the address.
Can somebody tell me why my e-mails aren't being received on my server? Am I missing something? I can send emails out through scripts I have set up, I just can't receive them when they are sent through Outlook. Do I need to install some other server like POP3? How about a SMTP server for sending e-mails out from the accounts?
Any help would be greatly apprecieated. I've spent the past 4 hours trying to get this to work and haven't gotten anywhere.
