I have installed qmail in my redhat linux machine along with vpopmail so that I can provide mail account to my user. My problem is that I can receive mail in my maildir sent from localhost that is using my own smtp server. But mail sent from another remote host can't be recived by my mail server. Can you tell me what's problem in my qmail.
Yes my DNS address is resovled probperly when I do dig mail.host.com it shows the ip address of my mail server.
I tried to send message from remote host doing telnet smtp.hos.com 25
and it says messages accepted for delivery.
However messsage is bounced back. with the follwing message.
Hi. This is the qmail-send program at abc.host.net
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.
Sorry, I wasn't able to establish an SMTP connection. (#4.4.1)
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.
However I can received mail send using my local smtp server. Can anyone tell me why is remote mail not received? Do I need to open access in my cisco firewall access list to allow connection to my smtp server from globally?
One thing I have not made DNS entry for my smtp server "smtp.lumbini.com.np" in my ISP dns server. Do I need to made dns entry for smtp.lumbini.com.np too to receive mail from remote host?
Well, I've just tried to deliver a message to your postmaster address, see if you get this one:
