    Can't See Server from Outside?

    I am using Postfix and Courier on my Debian server. If I login to the server and startup Evolution I can login to my pop3 and smtp servers just fine using my host. However, if I go to my other computer (on the same LAN, not that it seems to matter) and try to login to the pop3 it says "Connection to failed: Connection Refused". Now, if I put "" in for the mail server it connects just fine!

    This same thing applies to Apache SSL -- for whatever reason, apache won't let me do (it just hangs forever), I have to do Now this works perfectly fine on local, but when I am on this computer it says "cannot connect...". Furthermore, if I use instead here it works too! This applies to SSH as well... everything I've tried has failed except standard Apache and FTP. My DNS looks something like this:

    IP Addresses (A):
    ... | 123.456.7.8 (my hostname and same IP used for

    Mail Servers (MX): |

    What exactly am I doing wrong here?
