SASL and TLS authentication problem in Postfix


This "problem" is making my head spin as I'm not sure if Postfix is doing what it is programmed to or if I'm doing something wrong.

I've set up Postfix and Dovecot running SASL and TLS. It's working almost flawlessly, but there is one major problem. The problem is that Postfix is relaying mails to local and outside mail clients no matter if i use TLS or not, with user name and password or not. It will not relay mails if you use TLS and type the user or pass wrong.

I read somewhere that Postfix will consider incoming mails to be secure if it comes from the same ip or network and this is what is making me unsure if it is doing what it should be doing or if I have configured it wrong. I have no way to test this from the outside from another ip not within my network.

I would very much appreciate it if someone could look at the log files and configuration files i'm linking to and tell me if i'm doing something wrong or if this is normal.

I have given a short explanation of what you're looking at in the logs and also you will find a complete list of my postconf -n


Sorry but i left some important information.

All mails in the log files has been sent from my desktop computer to the server, they are not sent from the host itself.

Your logs show three delivery attempts, all delivered to locally on the postfix server. This behavior is normal. Your logs do not show that postfix is relaying
mail for unauthenticated clients.
