I have deployed a fresh Debian 8.5 image from DO, and both Postfix (2.11.3) and Dovecot (2.2.13) according to these tutorials: — How To Set Up a Postfix E-Mail Server with Dovecot (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-postfix-e-mail-server-with-dovecot) — How To Set Up a Postfix Email Server with Dovecot: Dynamic Maildirs and LMTP (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-postfix-email-server-with-dovecot-dynamic-maildirs-and-lmtp)
Then, sending test mails from the command line with “mail firstname.lastname@example.org”, they don’t reach that account, and there are no errors in [/var/log/] mail.log, mail.err, mail.warn, syslog.
I’m lost :( Need your quick help in order to be able to get my mail server running…!
Thanks in advance, Alec.
