    I'm using fedora 4 and have been trying to set up to receive emails.
    Using evolution I am able to send mail out to my webmail address (and others)
    but have not been able to receive. I am not sure if this is an evolution configuration problem or sendmail. Any tips would be helpful.

    Thanks for your response Falko
    Iv'e attached my mail log. View attachment mail.txt . The link you suggested I will look at again when I'm at home.
    I had read it before posting this and did'nt think it was relevent, but I may be wrong and will follow it through when I get home, but at least I can send. I am not running webmin so how to I check "SMTP Port Options" from the command line interface.

    thanks for your help

    Is your server behind a router, on a DSL line with a dynamic IP address? It's likely that big email providers block these IP addresses. Another reason might be that your server doesn't have a proper PTR or SPF record.
    Please contact Yahoo and ask them about their policies regarding the acceptance of emails.
