Qmail SMTP problem

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by Bluelane, Nov 7, 2005.

    I have Plesk freshly installed on a Debian server.

    My SMTP port (25) is listening but I cannot send emails from a mail client like Outlook ! I can only send and receive mails via the Webmail of Plesk.

    I create email account from Plesk and follow the notice.

    When I configure account on Outlook, the pop configuration is good (but don't receive anything) and the smtp configuration return to me an error like nothing respond.

    Anyone can help me ? Thank you !

    A little vague ...

    Well first check if SMTP is working by:

    #> mail your_account_on@hotmail.com

    and see if you receive it.
    If not telnet localhost 25
    mail from: you@yourhost.com
    rcpt to: you@yourhost.com
    If it doesnt send check wich error is giving.

    Maybe firewall is blocking port 25, try turn it off temporarily.
    Check /var/qmail/mailnames/domains/yourdomain.com/youraccount/ and see if you are receiving mail when sending email to yourself from within the machine.
