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 220.127.116.11:110 0 143 imap No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 18.104.22.168:143 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. :)
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 forA 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 = *,::
