Squirrelmail problem and żBIND9? problem

Hi everybody,
I'm installing a webmail server with Squirrel, Exim4 and Spamassassin. I have been doing lots of investigation and several configurations to get where I am. I can send mails to almost all hosts (I will solve the rest when solved the first problem) and receive from them (including that ones to where i cannot send).

The first problem is:
When I send a mail, it sends everything, but the browser gets no response from Squirrel, so it stays waiting for connection.

What is happening?

/var/log/exim4/mainlog says:
2007-07-08 18:41:35 1I7ZpG-00084c-2p <= H=localhost [] U=emi P=esmtp S=697
2007-07-08 18:41:36 1I7ZpG-00084c-2p => user <> R=local_user T=maildir_home
2007-07-08 18:41:36 1I7ZpG-00084c-2p Completed
And the second problem is that don't recognize some others domains, as said in mainlog when trying to queue mails:
2007-07-08 18:52:42 1I7YGn-0000fT-G6 == R=dnslookup_relay_to_domains defer (-1): host lookup did not complete
2007-07-08 18:52:42 1I7Y8u-0000AF-Nm == R=dnslookup_relay_to_domains T=remote_smtp defer (111): Connection refused
2007-07-08 18:52:42 1I7MCl-0001Xu-5X == routing defer (-51): retry time not reached
Note the difference on and (the second has www.).
I think this second problem is a BIND9 problem. My server also serves DNS, and, particularly,, as master DNS and, as slave DNS.

I'm using:
Debian Lenny (just upgraded today from etch)
Linux myhost 2.6.18-4-amd64 #1 SMP Fri May 4 00:37:33 UTC 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Exim4 4.67-1
SpamAssassin 3.2.1-2
SquirrelMail 1.4.9a-2
Bind9 9.4.1-1+b1

If you know which logs and config files are needed to do a better response, tell me and I'll post them.

Thanks in advance.

Some advances

Hi all again (is anybody there?)!!
I've made some advances: now I can send and receive from all the world, without exceptions!! I think it was a bind9 reparation I made.

But Squirrel still is giving me the same error: it hangs when I try to send or remove an unique message. Yes, it only hangs, because it sends or removes the messages, ˇˇand it can remove several messages at once from INBOX index page without hanging!!
Note: Hanging, in this case, is giving me the error...

Some hours later....

I repaired all!!!
The error was that squirrel was trying to link some pages to the https port!! (is it a bug, when all the rest of pages can go though the http port??). So, as I also wanted to make it as a secure connection, I made the SSL certificates and changed apache2 conf and... voila!!! Everything's going fine, now!!!

Best wishes for everybody!!



mailserver, webserver
