    Setting up email server: Webmin, Dovecot, Postfix

    I need some help again with the mail server setup. I have managed to get the server to send email from the website, but I would like to setup some mail accounts to receive mail too.

    I'm using Webmin, Dovecot, Postfix and Squirrelmail. I have installed those, but when I try to login to one of the email accounts from Squirrelmail I get this error.

    ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP server.
    and when I try to send an email to this account I get this

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxx.no

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    DNS Error: DNS server returned answer with no data

    Update> All errors are gone AFAIK. When I send to my email from my gmail account the mail never hits my inbox so what is going on ?

    I don't get any errors from google as I used too and there is nothing in the mail.log file.

    I guess there might be something with my MX record, it looks like this

    mydomain.com - 1h - MX - 10 - mail.mydomain.com

    try mx toolbox.com to test your mail server.
    do you have and spam filters in place that might be sending
    your mail to junk
