    Hi all,

    Firstly Till and Falko what a nice package you have put together.

    I am using debian 3.1 perfect setup and ispconfig as detailed.

    I can receive emails but can not send either using a pop3 client or webmail client.

    This is the pop3 error

    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    '[email protected]' on 6/02/2006 2:26 PM
    550 <[email protected]>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table

    The local user trying to send the email was web1_admin.

    The local domain is

    MX here

    dig mx

    Webmail error

    It was not possible to send this e-mail

    SMTP Error: Recipient not accepted. Verify your relay rules

    I can send emails to domains local to the ISP box but now to any other email addresses.

    I have looked through the forum but not found anything like this mentioned before.

    All help gratefully received.

    Thanks in advance

    Is your server's IP address? Is [email protected] in /etc/postfix/virtusertable?

    Hi is the ip address of the ispconfig server.

    [email protected] is the address that I am trying to send to.

    admin@tlchosting is the address that I am trying to send from.

    [email protected] is not a user in the ispconfig system

    admin@tlchosting IS a user on the ispconfig system

    Mails for go to, which means that this error:

    originates from, not the ISPConfig server.

    DNS Dumbass

    Problem solved.

    Different mx records in the external nameservers to ispconfig nameserver.

    Stupid error.

    Thanks for the help.
