configuring postfix, trying to deliver mail, even local doesn’t arrives
I'm trying to configure postfix at my server. The thing is that using an external relayhost (gmail) I can actually send emails from my machine, but if I try to use my local machine (no relayhost), then no mail arrives, even if I try to send email to my own local machine.
Logs don't say any error occurred, so I'm not sure what can be happening... any ideas?
If it's of any use, I use Debian Lenny
here's my main.cf file:
Heres the output in the logs:
actually /var/log/procmail is an empty file with 640 permissions, owner root, group adm (all other syslog files have that same characteristics)
Have a look at these sites. Several test are listed there in order to find what might be wrong. Postfix is only a part of a mail server, namely the MTA, the Mail Transfer Agent. You'll need other tools to route your mail. In these links you'll find what you need.
Thank you very much...
Actually, I discovered that the relay_host parameter should have something, since I have an ISP providing me with my IP address and etc...
What I was originally trying to do was to setup a mail server, behind the ISP yes, but without relaying on any other server. But I'm stumbling upon walls and walls, and I decided to relay on gmail for now... I managed to configure everything so I can send messages, which appears to be from my gmail account (unless looking at the source of the email, it happens to show the real data of my server ;) and I guess that tweaking at the From and Reply-To fields in the sent emails would do) and also, now I can manage to receive emails from external servers in to my inbox, so, I guess that would (or must?) do...
