Trying mail-in-a-box and trying to get it to work. I’ve followed the docs as carefully as I could.
All worked great for about a week and then emails to gmail not only don’t go to gmail spam, they get bounced back. Now this is happening to lots of sent mails to all other domains I send to. Basically I can’t send email to anyone. Lots of “Connection timed out”. Seems I’m receiving ok. But this worked great for a week.
My setup is on AWS (Amazon web services). Stock standard Ubuntu server 18. Then I updated/patched it all. Then loaded MIAB. All pretty standard. I have all the ports open that are required. however System Status Checks report Incoming Mail (SMTP/postfix) is running but is not publicly accessible at 22.214.171.124:25.
mxtoolbox(dot)com reports my two domains, goodlets(dot)com and icafe(dot)com(dot)au are all good. No blacklist. I’ve even tried to get into the gmail postmaster tools page (postmaster(dot)google(dot)com/u/0/managedomains) and get the txt record which i’ve added to my dns records, still nothing. I can’t figure out why gmail and now lots of other domains are simply rejecting my email. I’ve put every recommended dns record in there.
mxtoolbox(dot)com check on 126.96.36.199 my ip reports all good and even reports Connecting to 188.8.131.52… 220 box(dot)goodlets(dot)com ESMTP Hi, I’m a Mail-in-a-Box (Ubuntu/Postfix; see https:// mailinabox(dot)email/) [1819 ms]
What am I doing wrong or how do I troubleshoot this further? I don’t know what else to do?
Thanks in advance.
