Problems to receive mails from outside servers.

October 21, 2014 1.6k views

Hello, im following your tutorial to install iRedMail:

Before try 9 times i cant go out of this problem. I can send/recive mails between my own server, i can send mails to outside servers correctly, but when i send a mail from outside server to my own it dont arrive.

I dont know if this problem is normal, if there are a bug with iRedMail 0.8.7 version ( tutorial use 8.6) but i cant find a solution in the web so i ask you if someone had the same problem or know what is happening because im starting to lose hope.

Thanks for read.

run this:

netstat -plant|grep ":25"

if it says “”, run this:

iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT; service iptables save

If it doesn’t say “”, but says “”, edit /etc/postfix/, and change

inet_interfaces =


inet_interfaces = all

then run

service postfix restart
