    to test postfix thats easy

    If you can do this from a computer outside your local network that'd be great. If not lets see if you got the local part in the right.

    Lets see if postfix is going to deliver mail for our test user.

    telnet localhost 25
    mail from:<>
    rcpt to:<cactus@virtualdomain.tld>
    This is a test email.


    change those values iin the <> and after ehlo to your info

    should produce output like this..

    Connected to arch.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    220 ESMTP Postfix
    250-SIZE 10240000
    250 8BITMIME
    mail from:<>
    250 Ok
    rcpt to:<>
    250 Ok
    354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
    This is a test email.

    250 Ok: queued as 1AE962151C
    221 Bye
    Connection closed by foreign host.

    As for squirrelmail load it up in the browser does mail come in? If n ot then you dont have Mail delivery agent/filter Postfix + procmail + Dovecot I think you are missing and app

    And as to test Dovecot -> once running and configured, just connect to it as a normal pop3 or imap server.

    I might be wrong on the promail but i use it.. and it sorts the mail
    what distro? I was wondering as I was answering..
