Kolab2 Server Troubleshooting - Mailing problems
From Kolab Wiki
This section applies to problems you might have when sending or receiving mails over the Kolab server.
I can send email between email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, but I can't send email to an external account.
|Operating system||Distribution||Kolab version|
|Applies to:||probably applies to all *NIX systems||Applies to:||probably all distributions||Applies to:||Kolab 2.0 and higher|
|Found on:||Linux||Found on:||Redhat||Found on:||Kolab 2.1_RC1|
I just installed Kolab and right now I can send email in my local domain, but I can't send email to the outside. I did set my domain to abc.com, so I am now able to send email between email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, but I can't send email to an external gmail account for example.
In its default configuration kolab won't accept incoming mails from outside (the internet). You need to specifically activate this. Go to the Services panel in the kolab webadmin frontend and activate Accept Internet Mail.
Be careful about the $TMP env var, the script uses it. In some distro (ie Mandriva) this var can be /root/tmp and not /tmp (and of course, /root/tmp should not be 777 !)
Email Account is not being removed
You deleted an email account and you see that the kolabDeleteFlag is set but the account is not being removed.
Try the following:
/kolab/etc/rc kolabd stop
Login to cyradm an remove the account manually:
/kolab/bin/cyradm localhost -u manager
/kolab/etc/rc kolabd start
My problem persists
