Smile Need Help with postfix


Hello and Thank you in advance.

I installed postfix on my linux desktop. The mail is sending to my Gmail as spam but not to my msn account. Now, I know i don't have a reverse DNS and I don't even know how to do it. Can someone please let me know how to take full advantage of postfix to send emails?
thank you.

Hi,

Try:

Code:
postconf -e "relayhost = [my_isps_mail_server_fqdn]"
then:

Code:
service postfix reload

Thank you Much. It worked. One more question if you don't mind. I used the company email FQDN to do this. How about if i want to use mydomain.net, would that work? do you recomend anything?

No, mail servers will usually restrict relaying to people on the inside of their network

eg1. your company mail servers may allow relaying for the internal lan

eg2. ISP's will allow relaying for their customers who are connected to their network


cheers
