I have a redhat 9.0 server and it is its own dns server for www.ourowndomain.com and other two virtual domains.

I have configured firewall for ssh, telnet, pop, and all that stuff but when i start iptables i can´t get mail for user@virtualdomain.com but it works for user@maindomain.com, so i think the problem is anything related with DNS (i use named)

What port do i have to enable in iptables in order to other external servers can send mail to my_virtual_domain ?

This is, if you get the mails directly, but your provider has to set a MX record for all of your domains, so that other server can find the responsible server for this domain.

If you pull the mails from provider POP3 accounts, you have to allow outgoing POP Port 110.
