Hi everybody!

I configured a mail server with iredmail with 2 address ifaces: 192.168.5.2/30  and ext ip ex. 70.70.70.70    (192.168.5.1/30 is his gateway)

everything in LAN working, i can send and receive from internal and WAN connection too.... (i can ping, ssh ecc....)

(so both lan and wan's working)

my problem is the following: when i have receive mails from outside (gmail, yahoo....) I can't do that

here my tail -vf /var/log/mail.log

root@linux:/home/XXXXXXXX# tail -vf /var/log/mail.log
==> /var/log/mail.log <==

Could you please show us the bounce message in Gmail? Gmail will report why it cannot deliver this email to example@mydomain.com.
