Hi

I have a dilemma:

- YaST says that my firewall is open for email ('Mail Server' is listed as an allowed service).

- an external check tool (www.checkDNS.net) says that my port 25 is closed.

What can I do to ensure that I can receive email behind my firewall by direct SMTP?

(DNS for my domain is configured and, behind the firewall, responds correctly to 'dig')

Any guidance very much appreciated

Thanks

John
