Postfix-dovecot cannot receive mail
 
Hi all,

I have installed postfix and just works fine (receive/send) without problem on port 26

So I installed dovecot in order to check my mail with imap and Thunderbird (or other).

After change configuration files (dovecot.conf, main.cf and master.cf).

I setup the account in thunderbird, it ask me for password and no problem for sending mails, but I can only receive mails from my domain, or from external domain only using my domain SMTP.

In other words :
Mail from example.com to mydomain.com -> cannot receive message (retry time not reached for any host after a long failure period)

Mail from example.com to mydomain.com (using mydomain.com SMTP) -> Receive OK.

Nothing logged in the logs, when no receiving mails.

As sending and receiving was working well before installing dovecot and changing configuration of postfix. I think the error may be in postfix configuration files...I have been searching and testing solutions the last 2 days, without success.:(

Thanks in advance for your help.

Sorry, but what's the difference between the 2 examples you gave (apart from one receives and the other doesn't)?

smart guy.... your mail server MUST run on port 25, and just port 25

:redface:
You're right! works better with port 25 on, and with submission on !

Thanks...
