qmail, vpopmail


I installed on a server machine Qmail and Vpopmail, everything compiled without problems and configured correctly (vpomail with mysql enabled) on a Suse8.0 . All looks right, when i run the scripts for start the server smtp and pop, there are not error messages, all the vpopmail commands for add and edit domains and users are going correctly. But if i try remotely to connect to this pop and this smtp i recive error messages from my client (kmail). There are not firewalls installed in this moment,perhaps the machine is waiting only connection from localhost but i am not able to understand what really happen.
About those two programs i finded just the official documentation posted on the officials sites, is there any other documentatione somewhere online??? Or is there anybody here that had my experience and finded a solution???

Thanx to all

Did you use the xinetd stuff? If so, in the line that says "log_on_failure = HOST RECORD" try removing the "RECORD" part and restart xinetd.

First things first, run netstat -anA inet and see if port 110 and 25 are even listening and what IPs are they listening on?

jcookeman i can open the port 110 with telnet, the port 25 gives me "Connection refused"

green_dragon37 i installed inetd, not xinetd, should i have to change it???

chort is open just the 110 door, not the 25


The qmail service is on but the port 25 looks to be unused. On the same machine there is installed a site that uses php, this site has sended emails to the users of the forum inside using the sendmail wrapper of qmail ... how is possible if the smtp does not run correctly???
The pop server looks to be going but if i try to connect for download messages the server send to my mail client a message: "This user has no /home/maildir". If i send a message by a different smtp to the test account created with vpopmail on my server it looks that the message is going but still i can not download anything from that vpopmail account.

Wait!!! I started the qmail with the scripts finded in /var/qmail/boot and nothing was going correctly but now i finded a script on a linux magazine and it runs: i finally can see open the door 25, but rest the problem that i can not connect with my mail client. If i try to send an email by qmail smtp i recive this message: "sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1) "
I continue to think that there are restrictions to the external ip and qmail let connect only the localhost to itself.

The smtp now run correctly, i just need help to connect to the pop ...

i made:

cd /home/vpopmail/bin
./vadddomain domain.name
./vadduser user@domain.name


and with:

./vuserinfo

looks everything ok but i continue to recive from my kmail client a popup that says:

Impossible open "servername". The password coud be wrong.
The server said: "this user has no $HOME/Maildir"
