[SOLVED] Pop3 and Imap Ports blocked.

Hi folks, Well this certianly is a learning experiance but I have to say in my personal opinion a fun one.

Now here is something I am not sure about.

I have done a port scan with http://mxtoolbox.com/

Now according to this I have pop3 and imap blocked. I have port forwared it in the router so I know that is not where the problem lies.

110 pop3 No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 80.229.35.71:110 0 143 imap No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 80.229.35.71:143 0

Again I am using Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS Asus RN66U Router And Virtualmin.

As always any help is truly appreciated for the new to this world. :)

Well a little more digging and I found the problem. It is so satifying when I find it myself and fix it.

So scratch that problem solved.

And to help if anyone else has this problem.

Check the dovecot.conf and look for

A comma separated list of IPs or hosts where to listen in for connections. "*" listens in all IPv4 interfaces, "::" listens in all IPv6 interfaces. If you want to specify non-default ports or anything more complex, edit conf.d/master.conf.

listen = *, ::

And uncomment listen = *,::
