You can use other SMTP relays those are free and do not need authentication for relaying. You can search google for such. Or else you can use other mail services that you may have account with. Using a free relay is one option but I have never used one of those so I can not guarantee if mails from free relays are treated secure or spams.

sorry for keep posting x_x

earlier when i created the CA Certificate, i issued this command in terminal:

Code:
cat /etc/ssl/certs/Thawte_Premium_Server_CA.pem >> cacert.pem
i think so. but i guess that also won't cause the error right? i'm just baffled as to why the error i got at home and in school is totally different when both settings are the same? i'm using the same file for both x.x

There is no requirement for creating certificate. I do not have one created myself. I have no idea why you are facing so many issues for this.

I think you should give it a try starting from scratch. Remove postfix. delete all the related files and directories and reinstall and reconfigure.

i shall see how..

by the way, what do you configured your postfix as? there are options like 'internet', 'satellite mail system' etc. i chose satellite. i wonder if that affects the way it works

I have not used postfix as such. What I used was Zimbra which is based on postfix.

I see.
Hey by the way, are there any ways to solve this kind of error:

Code:
Aug  5 06:15:04 ubuntu postfix/smtp[4231]: 1AA8540A58: to=<xanios@server.com>, relay=gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com[74.125.155.109]:25, delay=1.6, delays=0.05/0.03/1.4/0.19, dsn=5.5.1, status=bounced (host gmail-smtp-msa.l.google.com[74.125.155.109] said: 530-5.5.1 Authentication Required. Learn more at                               530 5.5.1 http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=14257 g4sm354955wae.2 (in reply to MAIL FROM command))
no connection refused error, but authentication required.

See the link in the error. Also check with the sasl_passwd file if your user and password are correct and that it has been hashed and the same file is used in main.cf.

Then check all the parameter options in main.cf that relate to authenticating to external relay. What authentication method are you using? What options and all. Make sure you are not sending password as plain text.

Authentication method?

Quote:
Make sure you are not sending password as plain text.
you mean in sasl_passwd where i declared user@gmail.com=password < this cannot be plain text?

The password will be stored in plain text in the file before it is hashed. But how it passes over the network to the server is what I am talking about.
smtp_sasl_security_options=noanonymous,noplaintext is what I am talking about.
Also make sure tls method is enabled.
I can not think of anything else.
