    I have two machines: one for mail and one for web/dns. They both have the same domain, but different hostnames (mail.mydomain.com and web.mydomain.com). I access ISPConfig by https://mail.mydomain.com and https://web.mydomain.com. Will this cause problems?

    When I try to go to use webmail (https://mail.mydomain.com/webmail), it times out. Also, I'm having trouble getting new mailboxes to work in each of the sites (ie. [email protected] works, but [email protected] doesn't). I have several domains set up on both the mail and web/dns box, and I didn't do anything special to do virtual hosting. I just added new sites to the same client and used the same IP. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    ISPConfig is running on port 81 unless you changed that.

    On the web/dns box you have to choose "External mailserver" for the domains (under Co-Domains and under Options).

    I can log on to webmail now. Thanks!

    Since I changed it to external in "co-domains" AND in "options," I get the following error when sending to the email addresses using a mail client:

    [email protected] SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO:<[email protected]>:host mail.archsupply.com []: 554 <[email protected]>:Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied

    or when sending using Opera webmail:

    <[email protected]>: host mail.archsupply.com[] said: 554 <[email protected]>: Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied (in reply to RCPT TO command)

    I am behind a firewall -- would that be the problem?

    I can send mail; I just can't receive it.

    You only have to set mailserver to external on your website-server, not on your mailserver. Have you set the MX record pointing to your mailserver not your webserver?

    When you set mailserver to external, this server will not accept emails for the domains anymore.

    Works perfectly. Thank you so so much!
