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.

Chances are there's nothing wrong with your setup.
Many organisations will refuse mail from machines
where the reverse-lookup fails ... if you're on DynDNS
dns changes most likely don't propagate fast enough
for the reverse lookup to work for you for up to 3 days
(if it gets propagated at all). So, after an IP change
mailing such domains may not work for up to 3 days,
or (depending on what exactly dyndns provides) not
at all ... the only solution in that case would be to get
a static IP.
you should hopefully find that your ISP has an SMTP server available to you that will relay any mail within the ISP's client network. AOL etc... should then accept teh mail in the big wide world as it will have been sent by a big fat static smtp server, not your dynamic client server.

I'm not sure if this helps or not, but, microsoft in recent months restricted use of hotmail accounts to even windows users. Our office runs office 97, (except me, I'm using open office), and the users can no longer access hotmail accounts via outlook or outlook express. There is more info here.
When trying to send mail form an external comp I get this return:
Your message has encountered delivery problems
to the following recipient(s):

Remote-MTA: dns; angelot.homeftp.org
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 553 5.1.8 <firstname.lastname@example.org>... Domain of sender address email@example.com does not exist
Does this have anything to do with the error I get when trying to send mail to ex. homail-addresses with sendmail from my linux-box?
I'm going to start off by saying, I can't help you with the sendmail problem, I feel it has to do with reverse lookup not matching your headers.....
First, make sure that POP3 and SMTP are open ports for you, Most ISP's block them unless you have a Buisness Connection...
Second, If they are not blocked - DELETE SENDMAIL from your system..... sendmail has been natorious for years as being flawed and junk!
Install Qmail - It's a very Secure and FAST email server......
It's also very simple to install... I have included a link below to the Qmail Toaster -- It will install Qmail and WebMail using SquirrelMail
250 angelot.homeftp.org Hello, [...] please to meet you
250 firstname.lastname@example.org Sender OK
550 email@example.com Relaying denied. Proper authentication required.
This is where it ended...
Does this help in any way?
