I'm all new to Fedora as I installed it on my server today. The plan is to create the average webserver. Mail, web, ftp, MySQL, etc. I got everything working except for mail. More specifically outgoing mail. I cannot connect remotely to the SMTP server. I have installed Postfix on Fedora Core 5 with help from yum install postfix. I have also uninstalled sendmail.
The problem is, my ISP is banning outgoing port 25, so I cannot connect to my server (the server is leased, so at another ISP not banning any ports). I used SSL at my old server (which used Plesk) and had no trouble with mail. However, when trying to connect via SSL to postfix it doesn't work, I guess there's something I have to set up. All that happens is that it gets connected, then drops out because of a timeout. A telnet domain.com 465 followed by a "HELO domain.com" doesn't give me any answer either. And a friend of mine telnetted to port 25 and didn't get any answer on HELO either.
Does anybody have a recent guide on how to set up postfix and fix ssl and make this thing work?
