Mail Client POP3/ SMTP
i cant seem to get any email client to connect to my mail server. On the smtp side of things if i try to send out i get relay denied but its not connecting to POP3 at all what am i doing wrong.
or where should i be looking. I have tried with servers IP address and domain 2
Firewall is not the issue here since the relay access denied message is from the smtp server which talks with your email client but refuses to relay messages. If you are using postfix, check the following settings in /etc/postfix/main.cf
For your POP3 issue, make sure
1) your pop server is up and running, I use dovecot with postfix 99% of the time
2) your pop server listens on the LAN address instead of 127.0.0.1
thank you it appears that even though the pop service was started the smtpd_client section was missing from the main.cf
