Hi ... I wonder if anyone could give me some ideas of where to rummage around to get a clue what the problem might be.

Setup = ADSL router with 2 dhcp client boxes : Mac OSX and Suse Linux 9.1 Pro.
From Mac browsers work, email works. From linux browsers work fine, but I cant get email working at all (same config as on Mac) either from kmail or evolution. Messages are cannot connect to smtp.x.y and pop.x.y.

I'm somewhat of a newbie with linux but I just cant see what I might have set up wrong (or missed somewhere).

Any pointer as to where I might look would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I don't see anything wrong there ...

Make sure you pick the proper Authentication Type (plain, login, etc.). In Evolution there is a Check supported types button.

Still no luck from kmail or evolution but I think I've made a significant discovery ohmy.gif

I happened to cd to /var/spool and got the you have new mail msg! Ran mail and there they all were!

From my reading I guess I've somehow configured the postfix/sendmail system ???. Originally I used YAST to configure everything including Network Services->Mail Transfer Agent. Is this the problem?

Again any pointers would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Roman

An update ......

On boot I get the postfix daemon starting.

I can't send/receive mail from any gui client (kmail, evolution, thunderbird = cannot connect to pop../smtp..). However incoming mail finds its way to /var/spool..... and is retrievable with mailx.

If I stop postfix I CAN SEND mail from any client (!) but can't receive anything.

I just dont understand whats happening here.

Thaks, Roman
