    RE: Problems sending e-mail after Upgrade 7.5.3

    you have had a look in /etc/hosts
    There you must have at least: localhost.localdomain localhost
    <IP> <Full Hostname> <Short Hostname>

    <IP> your IP
    <Full Hostname> example: bla.blabla.com
    <Short Hostname> example: bla

    This Hostnames exists in Internet?
    Try from another host:
    nslookup <Full Hostname>
    it has to resolve to your Hosts IP

    Don't know if this helps you.

    yes i check it, but it is correct.

    i think my problem ist that im behind a firewall.

    my hostname (eg.www.sample.com) resolves eg. 212.18.xxx.xxx thats my public ip at the firewall the firewall is forwarding this to my maschine (plesk)

    so i think the stupid installer means,...
    -yes cool www.sample.com is 212.18.xxx.xxx
    -ohh **** im

    please help!!!!!!

    im really in trouble!!!

    It's not the firewall ...

    It's because BIND is down probably. I had this problem too .. use 'psa stop' instead of 'psa stopall' before installing.
