I have a redhat 7.2 firewall with a redhat 8.0 pop3 email server and
they are not on a local network together.

I recently reset the Iptables rules on the firewalll(big mistake) and
now email is no longer being sent to the mail server. So by my master
reasoning I'm guessing there was a rule forwarding email that is now

A couple of things I have tried that have not worked(though its
possible I'm doing something wrong)

1. iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -t nat -p tcp $FireWallIP --dport 25
-j DNAT -to $EmailIP:25

2. iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -d $FireWallIP -p tcp --dport 25 -j
DNAT --to-destination $EmailIP:25(also tried $EmailIP)

3. iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 25 -j DNAT
--to $EmailIP:25(als tried $EmailIP)

The fireWall does have 2 ipaddresses,(external, internal) while the
Mail server only has an external one. I've only tried using the
firewall's external ip address. I did try the internal once, but it
cut off internet for everybody on the network(the firewall also acts
as the default gateway for our windows machines) Any help appreciated.
