    Hi guys,

    I've always found this forum so useful and have always managed to find my answers before actually needing to ask a question... but I'm stuck this time.

    I have email running off a 10.6 OSX Mac Mini Server and until very recently, it worked perfectly. Then on Friday morning, it simply stopped receiving external emails. Internally, (computers on the same network) emails worked fine but emails stopped coming in from anything that wasn't on the network.

    Weirdly, sending emails OUT works fine, both internally and externally and I'm beginning to wonder if it might have something to do with DNS settings or port forwarding. I know very little about DNS settings but believe I've forwarded all necessary ports on the server for it to work.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

    Many thanks,

    solved this.

    It was a problem with port mapping. Many thanks.
