I wonder if anyone has any advice or knowledge on fixing this problem Iíve been having. i have just set up a postfix server that supports mysql and followed this online guide (well a few actually) and have also got dovecot working with all the necessary files. I can send emails and create and edit domain, mailbox and aliases etc from postfix admin, but the problem Iím having is that I canít seem to receive any email, the log donít seem to say anything and I have tried sending email from another server to it only for it to "status=deferred". The main guide I followed was:
section to all as well I can receive emails it tell me in the log and there placed in /firstname.lastname@example.org, yet when i go to http://localhost/webmail (which is Squirrel Mail) I can log in but see no emails that i have sent to myself, i have also tried emailing myself over localhost to test but with no luck.
i do dovecot -n and it tells me that there are no config files in /usr/local/etc/, yet ive placed them all in /etc/. dovecot will still start however and show up in the log as connecting to the database were mail is.
Tried both yet still no joy, sorry for the late reply. Any ideas were the settings are for "edit the start-up file for dovecot to point at /etc for configs". Iíve tried using evolution on the local machine over vnc yet still no joy with that either.
strange this is it seems to be reciving the email from my test email ntlworl.com in the logs:

i was thinking along the lines of its actually sending the email but to the local folders not the mysql database or somthing along those lines.
