    HELP , My Server Can't Receive emails

    Hello all.

    i just installed a personal webserver following the "perfect server ubuntu 7.10" guide.

    after that, I created an A record on my domain name to my ext IP address

    On ISPconfig I created a reseller account, then a client, then a website (
    for that website, of couse also created an email account with 50mb space
    after all, i have a 95% working server :) SIPconfig seems to work fine.
    i can start a FTP session SSH, almost everything with that account , but cant log in to squirrellmail

    after the squirrellmail log in screen i get this error
    ERROR: IMAP server closed the connection.
    Server responded:* BYE [ALERT] Fatal error: Maildir: No such file or directory 
    Now i know that the mail account must receive at least 1 email to be activated or created. i did that using my hotmail account but the message fail
    also i get this inside the reply hotmail sent.
    Reporting-MTA: dns;
    Received-From-MTA: dns;BAY125-DS2

    well, after a simple regeneration of ISPConfig's SSL and a server restart , the email service just start working.....
    Now I can send and receive email


    96% so far :)

    now, it comes to my attention that when i try to log in to the webmail
    (roundcube, webmail, squirrelmail) from a website (lets say it redirect me to my server domain (

    i know that i dont have any app such webmail installed under

    so, is this suposed to work like that?
    or is there a way to fix that?
