Email setup on CentOS 6.5 x32 Webuzo?

Posted September 27, 2014 13.5k views

Hello.This is my first post here and i see this a very helpful community.However i can’t find any instructions on how to setup an email server on CentOS 6.5 x32. I mean i have installed webuzo control panel but neither php mail or SMTP or working on my Webuzo panel.
So here i’m confused. Do i need to install/configure an email server via Putty or the Webuzo can do that via some settings? In any case any help would be appreciated.Thanks a lot.

You can install Exim and Dovecot by a click from the Webuzo Enduser Panel
Guide :

By default sendmail acts as the smtp service and should work fine.
Hope this helps :)

  • By default sendmail acts as the smtp service and should work fine.

    Right now,which by default,is not working at all..i will try your recommended plugins to see if they work. But are you sure that i do not need to install first some kind of email settings via console/putty?

  • Yes Sir, the default should work well for basic emails send/receive
    Once you install Dovecot and Exim , you will be able to create email accounts for your domains

  • Don’t get me wrong but you are still not clearly enough…what do you mean by default? You mean once webuzo is installed the e-mail function should work? ( as i have installed but emails are not working at all ) …or by default like, once i will install what you said ,it will work?
    Thanks a lot once more for your help.

    PS: Your first comment wiki link has no content: “There is currently no text in this page.”

  • Sir you can install Exim and Dovecot from the Webuzo Enduser Panel >> Apps >> Utilities >> Dovecot

    Valid - Link : [](http://)
    Seems {underscore} is not allowed in links

    This should resolve your issues with emails.
    You can always refer the Webuzo Wiki. It is loaded with plenty of information.

  • Ok.Did as you said but still is not working..I have restarted my droplet but i still can’t receive or send emails on created email account.
    When i login via SquireMail and compose a message and click send i receive the following message:

    Message not sent. Server replied:
    Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable
    550 Sender verify failed

    Also by typing in my console exim -bt ,i receive this:

    postmaster@ is undeliverable: mail domain “” is syntactically invalid

    I have installed my droplet twice,thinking that i might did some wrong steps but still the same error.

  • Seems the emails to “info” are forwarded to “postmaster” causing the trouble.

    Quick solution is to edit the file /etc/aliases and comment the lines which hold the word “info”

    For example

    info : postmaster


    #info : postmaster

    Restart your services from the terminal for once.

    service dovecot restart
    service exim restart

    Hope it helps :)

  • It worked..but now i can receive but can’t send. The emails i send ,they never get delivered..and no errors after i click send. Why does it have to be so complicated with the email function? :(

    Is it possible that the Mailing Method be the problem? How about switching to SMTP..what info i must enter in these fields?

    SMTP Server

    SMTP Port

    SMTP Username

    SMTP Password

    And for the SMTP Username and password should i just type a random info or it must be the username and password i have created my Webuzo install?

  • Is your hostname a Fully Qualified Domain Name ? If No, set it to your Domain Name

    SMTP Server :

    SMTP Port : 25

    SMTP Username :

    SMTP Password : *yourpassword*

    Hope this helps :)

  • No luck..The same issue..i can receive but i can’t send. Webuzo is useless for me without the email function. Any other suggestion please? Thank you.

  • You can open a Support Ticket with Webuzo, we will debug the issue on your server and resolve the same.

  • I’m using the free version you offer support for the free version also?

  • Sir I shall debug and resolve your issue. Do not worry :)

  • I created a test account on your server and sent emails to-n-fro
    Works well !!!

  • I tried on yahoo based emails not working. On gmail is working.
