So I was fooling around setting parameters and shit and now I can't log in using the "root" as username and the set password... how would I re-install only Xmail Server?

you would have to uninstall, then reinstall the whole a2t program. You can only select items for install

Are you trying to login as root@sitename.com or root ?
Try posting your config to see if maybe someone can help you find your error.

Alright I re-installed it but now... the thing is I don't have any knowledge of setting up the mail server at all and I got a no-ip name. So can you get me a tutorial on how to set-up a mail server so that when I sign-up for something on my server it can send me e-mails and I've tried the test e-mail and it says it sent successful but I've waited 24hrs and it still hasn't come so I don't know what's going on?

Okay so I have read the FAQ , the Tutorials and everything possible on this site including Apache2triad and others to help me set-up my mail server. I have a DNS which is hypnoticx.no-ip.org except now It's so darn confusing I'm trying to recieve e-mails using my outlook from the server which is a few feet away... except what do I do to set-up i want the e-mails to say like postmaster@hypnoticx.no-ip.org so my set-up is

"RootDomain" "localhost"
"SmtpServerDomain" "localhost"
"POP3Domain" "localhost"
"HeloDomain" "localhost"
"PostMaster" "postmaster@localhost"

Should it be that? or hypnoticx.no-ip.org <--- it is my DNS right?

or localhost.com?

For the client what should the POP3 Server be? and the SMTP or w/e it is?

The domain is localhost.com and custom domain is localhost.com also or should it be hypnoticx.no-ip.org?

E-mail Test
Getting MX record for hypnoticx.no-ip.org (from local DNS server, may be cached)... There is no MX record for hypnoticx.no-ip.org! That's bad.
Checking for an A record... Got it!

Host Preference IP(s) [Country] hypnoticx.no-ip.org 0 [CA] --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1: Try connecting to the following mailserver:
hypnoticx.no-ip.org -

Step 2: If still unsuccessful, queue the E-mail for later delivery.

Note: if you enter an entire E-mail address (such as postmaster@hypnoticx.no-ip.org), we will try to connect
to each mailserver to ensure that they are live and accept mail to the hypnoticx.no-ip.org domain.

Thanks in adavance,

You have to go to http://www.no-ip.org/ and setup your MX record (which means mail exchange, with no setup the Internet doesn't know your mail server exsists).

Once thats setup ensure your router and/or firewall has the ports open to receive mail (pop3=110, smtp=25).

This works, you need to wait some time for the MX record to go to the DNS systems around the world so if you get no response, be patient (should only be say 5-10 minutes if no-ip.org has it setup to respond straight away to maybe 8 hours if not).
