This is going to be a nice thread for newbie like me. I have a question: I buy a FIXED IP and have no problem to setup Web & FTP server, do I need to tell my ISP to forward SMTP & POP to my real IP. I have a domain(register @ mydomain.com) and it support A records, MX records, I setup to let people when they type mydomain it will point to my IP. Do I need to setup MX record to send & receive internet mail(ie. yahoo, hotmail, abc...)?

Thanks

ps. I'll keep reading this thread since I have tried to setup Postfix as my main mail server but still got no luck. May be I'll give another short..
Thanks

actually you only need to advice your ISP that you want to have your mail server so give them the IP that you want to assign to your mail server and they will do it for you, i mean they will set the MX record to your mail server IP. only that, it is so simple.

But anyway, if you wanna my help, do it and i will try to help you although i am not Guru and i am still learning.

Dear Pranesh,
Cos i never thinking of that way but my opinion is quite impossible, just think how can your Router any mail while it does not configure as mail server. Maybe possible to do that but really i do not know how.

Why don't you assign another public IP to your server instead of the IP for your router?

It will be more easy to do!

if you do telnet localhost 25 and get msg unable to connect, its mean that your sendmail haven't running, just do the following "service sendmail start" in your redhat command prompt, then try to telnet again and see whether get a good response or not!

after that get your redhat's cd and put it in your cdrom and install the rpm for imap.
then do telnet localhost 110, and see whether you get good or bad response.

After that tell me what happen and i will try to help you to setup a basic mail server.
ok i go conected on port 25 now what

I need help here. My Postfix works find I can send mail from Linux box to internet email(ie. someone@yahoo.com) and can receive from it too. I can also use MS-outlook to send mail to the user on Linux box and receive mail from both internet mail & user on Linux box. The only problem I have now is I CAN NOT use MS-outlook to send mail to internet email(ie. someone@yahoo.com) via Postfix. The postfix reply back:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

Subject: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@yahoo.com
Sent: 11/26/2003 7:31 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@yahoo.com' on 11/26/2003 7:31 PM
554 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@yahoo.com>: Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied


I read on the net and found out that by default, Postfix is ONLY allow known HOST to send mail and will reject any mail use IP. Is that true, isn't?
If I want to setup postfix allow people use IP to send mail, how am I going to do it?

Thanks

You need this package: http://popbsmtp.sourceforge.net/

I did that and it works fine.

Joesph,

Do you know what rpm is needed for pop3? I don't have a /etc/xinetd.d/ipop3 file. I looked on rpmfind.net and all I find is pop3proxy-1.2.0-3.i686.rpm and I'm not sure that this on is correct.

Any Ideas would be a great help.

Found it imap-2001a-18.i386.rpm install both imap and pop3

Troy
