1BTC if you can assist me in installing sending and receiving emails when somebody sends an email to my domain name.
Not through SSH just give me the steps through skype or something instant. I've attempted my self many times and failed.
I have squirrel mail installed and I'd like to get that working with it as well I believe I read that there is an extra step for that I'll pay 0.5BTC to help get squirrel mail installed.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Im not that great with linux, but have you tried nullmailer?
And if you are still having trouble you can relay the email with postfix

Post fix is the issue. I don't understand why it won't pick up on my domain name. All my emails get sent back to me.

"Relay the email from your SMTP server to your ISP's SMTP server.
Add the following option to /etc/postfix/main.cf:
relayhost = smtp.yourisp.com"
EDIT: It might be working fine but just bouncing back because of the address its sending from, if the sending address is wonky, take a look at this

Have you set the hostname for the box? Postfix won't send mail unless it can verify its own domain.

Shoudn't have to relay the mail unless hes running the mail server off a home connection and the ISP is blocking traffic on port 25, which quite a few do unless you pay for a business connection.

Well most VPS/Cloud providers set the hostname automatically from the information you give them when you initially order the VPS, slice, etc. There maybe a place to set/change it from the control panel of whatever provider you are using. I'd check and make sure it isn't misconfigured or something along those lines. It's also possible that the provider has a script to set the hostname on your server on boot, perhaps you are setting it on the server and the control panel is reverting it to whatever is configured in the panel when you reboot.

"Not through SSH just give me the steps through skype or something instant"
How is this supposed to be done at all? It'd be like trying to troubleshoot a computer without a monitor or keyboard in front of you.
I can help you with this, but it'd definitely need ssh access (you can just do a screen share so you see every command I type if you want/have the same terminal in front of you)


e: Cloud? This isn't EC2 is it?

Actually whatever error it shows in the mail logs gives us a way to troubleshoot the problem. Postfix is usually pretty descriptive in the error department.

Yes, please read us the logs.

You can get the most recent log messages with:
Code:
tail /var/log/mail.log

Also, have you configured postfix yet?
You can do so with:
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure postfix
This should give you a nice user interface to help configure your server.

FYI - If this actually is Amazon EC2, you're not going to be able to get outbound mail service unless you use an authenticated SMTP relay. All of their ranges drop mail traffic or are intentionally blacklisted.

If he is on EC2 this form should take care of that no? I do understand that they have strict volume limits but according to Amazon, filling out the form can raise that limit, allow him to set rDNS for the elastic IP and submits the elastic IP for removal from known blacklists?

Personally I set the MX records to google apps and send/receive emails with gmail, it's really easy to do and convenient. Of course if your running a site that is sending emails via PHP for example you will need to either setup the email on the machine or install the PEAR mail library and use Googles SMTP settings.

or just install ssmtp, configure that once, and PHP can mail like normal, automatically using smtp Smiley

This could give you a hand for a complete install: http://flurdy.com/docs/postfix/

If you need help via ssh, I know you told not by ssh but this is the best way for now, I'll do it for free. It shouldn't take so much time.

Let me know if you want I give you a hand for this.

If you run this command,
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure postfix

you'll eventually get to a screen like this:
Code:

  ┌──────────────────────────────────────────────┤ Postfix Configuration ├───────────────────────────────────────────────┐
  │ Please specify the limit that Postfix should place on mailbox files to prevent runaway software errors. A value of   │
  │ zero (0) means no limit. The upstream default is 51200000.                                                           │
  │                                                                                                                      │
  │ Mailbox size limit (bytes):                                                                                          │

  │ 0___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ │
  │                                                                                                                      │
  │                                  <Ok>                                      <Cancel>                                  │
  │                                                                                                                      │
  └──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘
                                                                                                                           

Right now, postfix is complaining that the maximum size of a single email is larger than the maximum size of the entire mailbox. You could simply type in a lager value for the entire mailbox at this screen, and it should fix that problem. 0 means no limit on the maximum size. I think the default maximum email size is 10240000, so if you do set a mailbox size limit, make sure it's more than that.
