This has been driving me nuts for two days now, so I really hope someone out there can spot my problem! Virtualmin is working very nicely, I think I have my DNS and everything else working except for the ability to send emails from mail clients, such as Outlook.
I have seen lots of other forum posts on possible issues but cannot seem to track down a solution, so here goes with my set-up and what I’m seeing (or rather not seeing!)…
Postfix & Dovecot up and running
CSF firewall - tested with it off and on - port 25 appears to be open, it works when I telnet to it.
Output of main.cf and master.cf attached
My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication = ticked
When I try to send mail I get I get timeout messages.
These are the last couple of entries from my maillog file, can’t see any errors?

Having run pingability I get:
Error There was a problem while talking with the mail server. Got ‘SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out’
So clearly something is not allowing connection through, but even with firewall off it still doesn’t work. I did make a bit of a hash of hostnames when setting up the server so maybe its time to go back to square one and start again but I’m sure this must be something stupid that I just can’t see having spent two days looking at it.
Really appreciate any help anyone can offer.
