Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been trying for days now to get a new RH 9.0 server to send emails via our companies (third party) smtp server. I first tried sendmail - yeah that sucked.
Switched to postfix! I can get emails to send to anyone with an email address from our domain. So assume my domain is 123.com anyone that has a 123.com email address will receive emails I send from this server.
When I try sending to someone outside the domain (which will be a very common occurance since this server will host our companies knowledge base) I get the following...
postfix/smtp: 84DDF38C051: to=<email@example.com>, relay=XXX.com[###.###.###.###], delay=17, status=bounced (host XXX.com[###.###.###.##] said: 553 <firstname.lastname@example.org>... Not server for att.net)
What am I missing?
An email to someone in my domain returns this...
Jan 27 11:22:31 frodo sendmail: i0RGMVFk017667: to=XXX@mydoamin.com, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30041, relay=[127.0.0.1] [127.0.0.1], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (Ok: queued as 2BFC738C051)

sounds like your relay server does not want to accept messages from you to relay. Does not sounds like a problem on the postfix system. You could try to modify postfix to not use a relay_host and see if that gets you around the problem for now.
glad to help..... :-) (what?!? no aferro?) anyway, the relayhost is used if you need all of your email to another system before it 'leaves the building'. Like if you have an internal mail server that handles all of your companies messages, but it does not have direct access to the internet (firewalls and suchnot). In that case, you send non-local messages to a relayhost, that has access to the Internet, and let it take care of it.
