I tried running yum update on my VirtualMin machine today. Afterwards I could not see Web sites, email or access SSH - so I started over with a clean install on Centos 5.3
The Web sites work perfectly with no messing. The same is not true of email.
I remember from the last time I (successfully) set up a new environment in Virtualmin that there are many 'hoops' to jump through in terms setting up email. Stupidly I didn't make a note of the hoops.
I created an email address: email@example.com
When I send a message to it, I get:
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: firstname.lastname@example.org No Such User Here ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------ Return-path: email@example.com Received: from ip72-197-223-109.sd.sd.cox.net ([188.8.131.52] helo=[192.168.0.102]) by amazing.billyfire.com with esmtpa (Exim 4.69) (envelope-from firstname.lastname@example.org) id 1N5YnB-0001pU-Sn for email@example.com; Tue, 03 Nov 2009 21:52:02 -0800 Message-ID: 4AF10878.firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Tue, 03 Nov 2009 20:52:08 -0800 From: "email@example.com" firstname.lastname@example.org User-Agent: Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 (Windows/20090812) MIME-Version: 1.0 To: email@example.com Subject: Test Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="------------030901010007040003020904" This is a multi-part message in MIME format. --------------030901010007040003020904 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit -- Type message here.
When I try and pop my email I get the:
"Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server mail.formatclick.com responded: Authentication failed"
I tried popping the mail with user name support and user name firstname.lastname@example.org with the same result.
When I try to access Virtualmin Email FAQ (http://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/id,frequently_asked_questions/do...) I get a Page not found The requested page could not be found. error
