    Could not receive mail through email client


    Hello,

    I have configured sendmail server on my local Linux Machine. I could successfully send mail but I could not download mail at any email client (outlook, evolution etc...).

    My DNS working fine. But when I configured outlook at windows machine, I could send mail from there but I could not download email as well in evolution also.

    FYI , I could successfully send/receive mail at text mode in my sendmail server but when I configured email client in graphics mode in that case I can send mail from email client but I could not download or receive email and I also do not receive any error while download the emails thorough the email client

    Thanks

    Which version of RedHat are you using? You need to configure pop services.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your response.

    I am using POP3 and I have also configure /etc/dovecot.conf file properly for the POP but still I could not receive or download mail through outlook or any other email client.

    Thanks

    DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=smtp, Name=MTA')dnl
    Users can now connect to send email

    Also please check your dovecot.conf file for the below mentioned configuration:

    protocols = imap pop3

    protocol pop3 {
    login_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/pop3-login
    mail_executable = /usr/libexec/dovecot/pop3
    pop3_enable_last = no
    }
    thx
