    ok ive read this and its exactly as i have done, the only concern i have now is :

    how does my user get his email ? i mean :

    ofc he sets his pop server to my mailserver, and he has to use the system user account i created for him ? ( login and password wise ) or what details does he need to login to his mailbox ?

    the ssh username and ssh password will him login to his mailbox.

    thanks a lot

    last question, this guy asked me if he can use my mailserver as smtp ( for sending mails ) ...

    I dont know about this, but does the setup guide i posted earlier shows you how to configure this crap ?

    The guy tells me, when he uses my server as SMTP server, he gets, relay access denied ...

    Make sure that the guy sets his outgoing server (SMTP) to use the same settings as his incoming mail settings

    The difference is between him and me is :

    i use the smtp server from my isp

    but he has to use mine . so he set it to be mine, but he gets relay access denied ...

    He must enable "Server requires authentication" in his email client.

    Are you 100% sure that the username and password are correct? What's in the mail log when he tries to send an email?
  16. MiniMe

    Yes he is.

    He is using smtp auth and this is the log :

    Dec 4 12:13:56 Artemis postfix/smtpd[3909]: connect from[]
    Dec 4 12:13:57 Artemis postfix/smtpd[3909]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from[]: 554 5.7.1 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied; from=<[email protected]> to=<[email protected]> proto=ESMTP helo=<home>

    tell him to try and connect and you check the logs on the server... that should give you clues.

    If you change that user's shell to /bin/bash in /etc/passwd, can that user log using SSH?

    It is / was / by default set as /bin/bash so yes this user can login using SSH.

    I did not change this.
