Qmail- Sending Receiving problem

Hi All,
Did anyone had this problem. I could send mail within my own domain but cannot send to a different domain. Sometime I could receive from external mail but at times not. Further, I can see all the mails in queue but they never get delivered. Stays in queue forever.

If anyone could give me some idea on how to go about solving this problem.

Many Thanks

You probably lack the file /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts. qmail refuses to relay without that file. And it must not be empty. Just add your domains to it:
