Aloha,

Using help from this list and Greg Lehey's book I have built a FreeBSD 
6.2 server for a mail server and Installed Postfix from ports and tested 
it OK.
I can see mail on the server in the expected box by telnet.  I installed 
pop3 to capture the mail on another  FreeBSD 4.11  box on another 
network using  firebird just like a client would over the internet.
The passwords are in the /etc.passwd for local users.

Errors:
 >
Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server mail.internetohana.net  
resopnded: Password supplied for alp@internetohana.org  is incorrect.

on the box istelf i get:

telnet localhost  110 
Connected to localhost.internetohana.org. 
OK

>From the client command line on another network I get this using the servers name:

telnet mail.internetohana.org
Trying ....(etc) 
OK Qpopper.

telnet mail.hawaiidakine.com 110
mail.hawaiidakine.com 110: No address associated with hostname.

This is a virtual host under /usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual

hawaiidakine.com        anything
info@hawaiidakine.com	hdkmail


The alp mail is a local usr for testing and hdkmail is the local user for hawaiidakine.com the virtual domain.

Mozilla is the email reader I set up for fetching the info@hawaiidakine.com mail stored in the hdkmail box.
I maybe have faulty postfix settings.

Anybody know of a how to to set these virtual hosts up to respond properly? I have all of them in the local host under  /var/mail 

Thanks.
