I am trying to set up my mail system. I am running a network with a R4.6-RELEASE gateway (sexy.la3sg.net) with Sendmail and ipf, and a R4.7- RELEASE workstation (syvert.la3sg.net) with postfix, fetchmail and mutt.
I can exchange mail between the boxes on my LAN, send mail to the outside world and participate on this list from my workstation. When I send a mail intended for the workstation ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) from an external webmail account, the mail is returned because my gateway 'refuses to connect' ========================================== Return-Path: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Received: from mail.broadpark.no (mail.broadpark.no [126.96.36.199]) by tre.server.freewave.no (Postfix) with ESMTP id 860F2146B8B for <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; Wed, 19 Feb 2003 11:07:27 +0100 (CET) Received: by mail.broadpark.no (Postfix) id 0C2BC785D9; Wed, 19 Feb 2003 11:07:27 +0100 (MET) Date: Wed, 19 Feb 2003 11:07:27 +0100 (MET) From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] (Mail Delivery System) Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] MIME-Version: 1.0 Message-Id: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> X-PMFLAGS: 570949760 0 1 P2DA30.CNM Content-Description: Notification Content-Type: text/plain This is the Postfix program at host mail.broadpark.no.

The Postfix program <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>: connect to sexy.la3sg.net[188.8.131.52]: Connection refused ============================================== I am using zoneedit.com where I have set up "A records" pointing to la3sg.net, sexy.la3sg.net and syvert.la3sg.net The "MX record" points to sexy.la3sg.net as my mail server. My ISP has set up my domain so that a reverse lookup should resolve. I have read Ch. 20.3 in the handbook and populated the files /etc/mail/access aliases local-host.names and virtusertable for Sendmail on the gateway to the best of my understanding. Help appreciated! I found postfix easier to set up. Is it advisable to switch to postfix on my gateway also?
