why thunderbird can not connect my email on vps?

February 21, 2015 2.3k views

I want to build a simple email server on vps with no any ssl certification.
AFTER master the simple email server , I want to build a email server on vps with ssl certification.Here is the way to do it:
apt-get install postfix dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d

My domain is noxp.info , email account is joe@noxp.info , passwd for the email is “itisatest” , you can ssh the account and test to send and receive emails, it is ok.

joe@born:~$ cat /etc/postfix/main.cf
smtpdbanner = $myhostname ESMTP $mailname (Debian/GNU)
biff = no
appenddotmydomain = no
readmedirectory = no
myhostname = born
maps = hash:/etc/aliases
aliasdatabase = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = noxp.info, born, localhost.localdomain, localhost
relayhost =
mynetworks = [::ffff:]/104 [::1]/128
sizelimit = 0
delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all

It seems to me that everything is in good order.
But i am confused that the email server can’t connect by thunderbird.

Please try all of them.

How to fix it ?Thank for your answer.

Edit your post and remove your login information.

For the safety as rascul ,i change the password for joe@noxp.info .Do not try with “itisatest” again .

Have you tried to see if it’s a networking issue between your client and server? What happens when you try to telnet into the IMAP/POP/SMTP ports?
