Topic: no longer receiving emails, but can still send

==== Required information ====
- iRedMail version: 0.8.3

My email server has been working without error since November 2012 after migrating to PC-BSD 9.1 from 8.0. Suddenly it stopped receiving emails. I can still send from the server.

I made no changes and the router is still set to allow port 25 traffic to my server. IMAP and webmail still work. I can telnet to port 25. There were no server changes in the past month or more. I can 'dig' the mail domain and 'dig mx' .

Any recommendations as to where to start to find the problem?

Re: no longer receiving emails, but can still send

*) First of all, PC-BSD is not officially supported by iRedMail team. We didn't test it, and we recommend users to choose FreeBSD if possible.

*) It stopped receiving emails, is there any related log in Postfix log file (/var/log/maillog)?

Thank you for taking a look. PC-BSD is essentially freeBSD with some add-ons.

Postfix is running and producing logs as usual. 2/24 is last day a I received emails and the 2/25 log seems to have some activity on it so I can send that some of that one. Let me know if I should send the whole thing.... I see greylist=abuse in this one.

I see this in the maillog:

Re: no longer receiving emails, but can still send

Thank you for your reply!

Well this is largely a personal use server setup (for my own edification/education).

After that particular log the other postfix logs are rather barren of useful information. In fact I am copy/forwarding from my main comcast.net account and none of the recent emails have shown up in the latest logs. This log should at least have something rejected but doesn't seem that way.

Re: no longer receiving emails, but can still send

OK. It is comcast. They are universally blocking port 25. SO, I guess I need to find a way to setup an MX record that routes to an alternate port??? Port 465?

It is idiotic for them to block outbound forwarded email from their servers to their own customers on port 25. Since this is blocked at the modem it would seem to be technically simple to allow it to be open for their own server.

Any ideas?
