    I feel like an idiot posting this, because, after all the posts about mail problems I've read, I can't seem to find the answer to this problem in any of those.

    I'm running Fedora Core 4 and Postfix. I've set up 3 domains with 2 users each (1 admin user and 1 'normal' user). Everything seems to be setup right, and working... the DNS is resolving correctly, all the web pages are displayed correctly, I even installed UebiMiau for a web interface, and I can log into that with all the users.

    The problem is that I send mail to, say hotmail/gmail email addresses, and I send email from hotmail/gmail addresses to users on the server, and the emails just seem to disappear. After I click send, I get a message that says, "Email has been sent" but I never see any email again.

    I have gotten 1 email back from hotmail saying:
    (I guess I'm expecting a lot more of those as they time out and send that message again and again until if fails or something)

    So, it wasn't failed... it just hasn't been delivered. Weird.
    I tried to find some log files of any kind of activity, but I have no idea where log files would be to look for them.

    Sorry I'm inept. Can anyone help me?

    The log files are in /var/log.

    There are several possibilities why the mails disappear. E.g., do the MX records of the recipient domains point to your ISPConfig system?
    If you have your ISPConfig server in a local network, is it possible that your ISP blocks port 25?
    If you are in a local network, make sure you forward port 25 to your ISPConfig box.
