I'm on OpenSUSE 12.3, and setup a mail relay under mail server settings (posix) via yast.

I try to send a mail and get timed out:

2013-09-27T15:19:08.745282+01:00 myserver postfix/qmgr[12258]: 2973BE49E4: from=<>, size=2705, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Ldap logs via the php app, show error:

Array
(
[0] => An unexpected failure occurred
[1] => 0x1: Failed to retrieve DN for account: enphsrob [0x51 (Can't contact LDAP server): ldap://ldap.mysite.com]...)

I've copied ldap and mail settings from a working server on SLES 11, firewall is also the same (HTTPS/HTTP/SSH only). I have to be whitelisted for the mail server and was told I was whitelisted. For ldap I don't know if that is also the case. While I wait to find out, I want to see if it's something I can fix. Thanks in advance for any replies!

In this case I was right. External factors were blocking the server from accessing the ldap and mail servers. When they said they had enabled access, they actually had not and I had to chase it up.
