    Problem connecting to my postfix mailserver

    Hi there,

    I would need some help understanding where I went wrong when I tried to configure my mail server...

    I have followed the guide here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Po...ailSystemHowto

    And also added some information to the MySQL tables, so I would have a user to log into...

    So far so good, but when I try to configure Thunderbird to connect, I get the following in my /var/log/mail.log:

    domU-12-31-39-09-50-45 imapd: Connection, ip=[::ffff:86.140.88.215]

    I understand that the mailserver is actually listening and that the DNS is working correctly.
    What I don't know is what user information I would need to use. I would appreciate the help of someone that knows this stuff a little.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    It seems that the problem might not be postfix, but courier...

    I did manage to set-up my mail server in the end.
