    I have installed Ubuntu using http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu_5.10 and after many hours of work and a lot of help from this forum i've managed to make it work, well, with a few exceptions:

    1. I want to know if it is possible to acces https://mydomain.com:81/webmail something like http(s)://mail.mydomain.com and if it posible ... how?

    2. I can't connect to the server with a mail client to retrieve and send mails from my account (if i access it via https://mydomain.com:81/webmail it's work just fine). It says something like "Incoming server 'mail.mydomain.com' not found".


    I cannot access ftp://ftp.mydomain.com via web browser (i can connect with a ftp client), i believe that it don't allow anonymous connection. How can i fix that.

    and...i almost forgot.... under System/Administration/Login Screen Setup Xserver tab i deleted whatever war written there (Servers to start) by accident and now i get some sort of error every time server restart. Can somebody just copy paste that?

    Please help !

    My /webmail/inc/config.php looks like this:
    and /postfix/main.cf:

    # See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version

    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
    biff = no

    # appending .domain is the MUA's job.
    append_dot_mydomain = no

    # Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
    #delay_warning_time = 4h

    myhostname = ns1.mydomain.com
    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
    alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    #mydestination = ns1.mydomain.com, localhost, localhost.mydomain.com, localhost
    relayhost =
    mynetworks =
    mailbox_command =
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    recipient_delimiter = +
    inet_interfaces = all

    Please create DNS records (A records) for mail.mydomain.com. Then it will work.

    Does ftp.mydomain.com exist in DNS?

    Also make sure that ns1.mydomain.com exists in DNS.

    I think you're basically having DNS problems because of non-existant records.
