postfix config
 
hello.
iv'e been working on setting up an email server. I'm using ubuntu server 10.04LTS adminstrated mostly in webmin.
I can send email from the terminal in the server.
i can receive email using pop in live mail and thunder bird.
when i try to send mail, it fails.
mail.log either says that there was a SASL error, no valid NTLM response received, or it wont say anything, depending on how i have thing configured in the client.

attached are the config files for postfix.
thanks for any and all help, i have been banging my head against this for a few days now.

I needed a server to send mail notifications only. It never needed to receive mail.
I struggled with sendmail and postfix. One of my problems was my ISP blocking ports for outgoing.
Somebody suggested "ssmtp".
It worked like a charm, did exactly what I needed the server to do: send event notifications to internet email addresses (or SMS texts for that matter).

Just a suggestion.
:-)
