[SOLVED] Pop3 and Imap Ports blocked.

Hi folks,
Well this certianly is a learning experiance but I have to say in my personal opinion a fun one.

Now here is something I am not sure about.

I have done a port scan with http://mxtoolbox.com/

Now according to this I have pop3 and imap blocked. I have port forwared it in the router so I know that is not where the problem lies.

110	pop3	No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 80.229.35.71:110	0
143	imap	No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 80.229.35.71:143    0

Again I am using
Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS
Asus RN66U Router
And Virtualmin.

As always any help is truly appreciated for the new to this world. :slight_smile:

Well a little more digging and I found the problem. It is so satifying when I find it myself and fix it.

So scratch that problem solved.

And to help if anyone else has this problem.

Check the dovecot.conf and look for

A comma separated list of IPs or hosts where to listen in for connections.

“*” listens in all IPv4 interfaces, “::” listens in all IPv6 interfaces.

If you want to specify non-default ports or anything more complex,

edit conf.d/master.conf.

listen = *, ::

And uncomment listen = *,::
