Quick Postfix relay query

hi all.

i've got a milter (postfix, amavis, spamassassin) up and running between the internet and our exchange server. from the firewall, all port 25 traffic goes through postfix and from there into exchange. it all works fine.

the niggle is, since putting it in i can't use an imap client from home to send mail using my work account. i can read the mail (which i'm presuming is because imap goes straight to exchange) but can't send, so it's obviously some relaying issue i've overlooked.

any ideas on which line of the config file i need to look at?

On a general note, I suppose you should first check the log files and see what error messages you get and from which server and only then tweak configuration.

aren't any log entries for the instance of me connecting. :-)

i think it's some sort of automatic thing that's set up without any reporting...
