Postfix : mail cannot send to send outside ( can send/receive locally)

I can send mail locally.

Cannot send outside (internet)

my localdomain is and can send mails internally

When i send mail outside it shows

Dec 16 07:27:03 washington postfix/smtpd[11044]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from localhost.localdomain[]: 554 5.7 .1 <>: Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied; from=<> to=<bobbin@armia. com> proto=ESMTP helo=<>

You probably haven't specified mynetworks correctly

Have a look at this parameter in, and if you are still having trouble, post the output of

postconf -n

Check the relay configuration in, particularly the $mynetworks parameter which specifies the clients allowed to relay from specified IP addresses,
