Hi,
I've setup my macmini server for Mail, DNS, iCal and a few other things, but not for my website (its hosted elsewhere...)

So, server is called srv1.mydomain.com
website is at www.mydomain.com
mail is accessible on srv1.mydomain.com & mail.mydomain.com

So how would I access webmail? Tried all variations of domain.com/webmail but nothing - am I missing something somewhere?

Cheers

Phil

http://www.mydomain.com/check/mail_check.bml

It's right on the main page in the upper-right corner... That is what you're asking, right?

What version of OS X?
On Leopard and Snow Leopard servers, web mail access is:

http://www.domainname.com/webmail/src/login.php

Sorry, no. I should've put domainname.com..
So my mail server hostname is srv1.domainname.com
My website is www.domainname.com - Not hosted through my server but with a third party...

I'm using Lion server.

Thanks :)

Did you set up an MX record?
Here is an example.

Record FQDN Record Type Record Value MX Pref
mail.mydomain.com A <ip address>
mydomain.com MX mail.mydomain.com 10

Yes, DNS is fine, nslookup mail.domainname .com returns my static IP..

Internally I can connect to the webmail through http://internalserverIPaddress/webmail and http://localhost/webmail on the server itself.

Its just trying to get the final part - external access working.

Did you open the necessary ports on your firewall to allow access?

see this link for OS X lion Server services and ports

You're right, that link does not work anymore, here is another link.
Try this one:
