This is not the answer. The filtering must happen on the IMAP server, over which you have no control.

comment Why not assign the hostname to the loopback address in /etc/hosts?
I ran into the second case this morning. Configured a server to listen to the IP address given by its fully qualified domain name on a particular port, then tested the connection using telnet, then told a remote collaborator that the server was up and running. He couldn't connect. It turns out neither the server software nor telnet do a DNS lookup: both resolve to 127.0.1.1, so my telnet command was connecting, but no remote connections were possible.

comment sshd running at 100%
Snother idea is to check logs or issue lsof to find out whether any ssh connections are being made or attempted at that time.

comment How to block ports (in Linux) based on the IP used to connect?
My guess is that the downvote is because you didn't explain where exactly you got stuck. It's as if you didn't even try.

man iptables or use Google. I don't find this stuff (e.g. 'chains' in iptables) very easy but I do find the answers that way. BTW I think it's better and easier to just block all incoming traffic (rule 1) and then open port 80 (rule 2).

comment Ubuntu - How can I see what an IP is doing in my server?
You can check out the ancestors of the process with pstree and you can see what it is doing at the system call level with strace.

comment Can a virtualized machine have the CPU and RAM resources of multiple underlying physical machines?
To be more precise: disks can be combined in this way (it makes sense, as network speed usually greatly exceeds disk access speed), while memory and CPUs cannot (the resulting virtual memory and virtual CPU would be too slow).
