mail redirect not working

    If i create an email account and setup mail redirection then it simply dont work. (when i send a mail to that new address, it goes no where).

    anyone know how to solve this?

    Plesk 7.5.3
    RH AS 3

    What activity do you see in your maillog?
    Do you get any bounces?
    Are you sure dns is setup properly?

    If you have root login, please login to the server via SSH and issue the following command, then post the results here:

    ps -ax |grep 'qmail'

    Then do this command and post the results:

    netstat -an |grep ':25'

    Basically the first command should show several qmail processes running in memory. This is to verify that the mail service is actually running.

    The second command should show that something is 'Listening' on port 25 (SMTP).

    Since your log shows 'nothing' and you are not getting a bounce or failure back to the originating email account, it sounds as if either the mail daemon is not running or not listening on the right port.

    Also, are you running a firewall or is the server behind a router? If it's behind a router, then have you setup port 25 forwarding to the server's IP?

    i already did that:

    29460 pts/0 S 0:00 qmail-send
    29464 pts/0 S 0:00 splogger qmail
    29465 pts/0 S 0:00 qmail-lspawn ./Maildir/
    29466 pts/0 S 0:00 qmail-rspawn
    29467 pts/0 S 0:00 qmail-clean

    weird thing is, i just check qmail in plesk and the stop and restart is grayed out for me!

    This happened after upgrading from 7.1.6 to 7.5.3

    edit: hmm weird, got this grayed out buttons on both servers...

    So are you running on a dedicated server or a VPS/Virtuozzo server? If it's a dedicated server then you may want to re-run the upgrade.

    So the hardware is not shared, but the whole **** runs in Virtuozzo.

    Just tested on another server with the same config, and it doesnt work on that one either!

    This shows that the message was delivered to the forwarded address's email server and was accepted.

    Is the other server under your control as well?? If so, can you check it's logs?

    If nothing else, try forwarding to an external Yahoo/Gmail/Hotmail account and see if the message ends up in that account (or in the Spam/Bulk) folder.
