Are you sure you allow hmailserver in windows 7 firewall ?
Is you port 25/TCP redirect to you server from your router ?

When i do a port check on 218.85.65.150 ( http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ ) i get "Port 25 is closed on 218.85.65.150."
hMailServer 5.6.8 With SpamAssassin 3.4.2

I have tried to close the firewall,but still invalid .
Is you port 25/TCP redirect to you server from your router ? If no,what shall I do?
so what can I do as the port was closed? Change the IP? How ?

Thanks again.

That 'test local connect' isn't necessarily fatal.

It is normally caused by your router not handling loopback.
If this actually affects usage (and mostly it won't) then you can add an entry to your C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.
