Having my Diploma Final Project on setting up a virtual mail server within Local Area Network (LAN) only.

I had follow this how-to and complete up to squirrealmail web mail. I added two new user to try on sending and receiving mail. It works.

I run CentOS on VMplayer. I using my laptop to do all the stuff, the laptop default OS is windows 7, i install VM player on it and run CentOS inside the VM Player.

I want to do testing on Windows 7 side by installing Thunderbird email client program, i want to connect to mail server with SMTP, IMAP/POP3 using the email service. I have problem while setting up user account on Thunderbird, Thunderbird seems like cannot detect my CentOS mail server. How ?

Do i have to do any other configuration on CentOS ? any DNS ? port number for IMAP,POP3 or SMTP ?

Can anyone help me ?

Did you check your IPtables settings ? Stop iptables and check your Mail client connectivity to mail server. If client able to connect, Allow port 110,25 and 143 in iptables.
