    Problem in Squirrelmail


    Dear Forum:
    Hi:
    Hope to see you in good health.
    I want to send and receive emails using my IP address and not my
    domain name!, i.e. the email address should be of the format
    name@[ip_add_ress].
    I installed Squirrelmail, made an entry of it at apache Webserver,
    i.e. when i wrote "http://localhost" in my browser ,i got the login
    page of squirrelmail.
    I made different accounts and hence can login in squirrelmail, using
    different user names, like root, or httpd etc etc.
    I manage to send emails, the email were of the format:
    username@servername.
    where:
    username = my login name with which i login
    servername = my server name which i choose for squirrelmail, u know
    "./configure", I can even choose "hotmail.com" and can send emails,
    but u know it is unethical . I can send emails to any body around
    the world. Anyway to cut the story short here is my Problem:
    I can send emails but I cant receive emails, I know that I have to
    send emails in the format name@[202.5.145.41], but when I send email I
    got message that
    "Couldnt send mail for Four Hours".

    So I can summarize my problem as
    "I can send emails, But iam unable to receive emails"
    Here are my server settings( I think so these are enough ) of
    Squirrelmail as follows:
    squirrelmail version = 4.1.2
    Redhat version = Redhat Linux 9
    domain name = example.com( i even tried my IP address)
    Invert time = False
    sendmail or smtp = smtp
    IMAP Settings:
    IMAP Server = Localhost
    IMAP Port = 143
    Authentication Type = login
    Secure IMAP(TLS) = false
    Server Software = uw
    Delimiter = Detect

    SMTP Settings:
    SMTP Server = localhost
    SMTP Port = 25
    POP Before SMTP = False
    SMTP Authentication = none
    Secure SMTP(TLS) = false

    Also my webserver name is my IP Address( i.e. 202.5.145.41).
    And my IP address is a registered IP address.
    So Kindly help me and point out what is wrong, as far as i can guess I
    think so my SMTP settings are all right because i can send emails, but
    since I cant receive any email so I think so some thing is wrong with
    my POP3 Settings,
    Where i can rectify this, I am sort of new in this field, so kindly
    treat me just like that.
    Your help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance

    This is not my area so this is probably a long shot....
    tried to change your IMAP-server to your IP(202.5.145.41)?
