Question [postfix] allow relay from 1 ip


Hello,

I have a problem i cant find the right sollution for even using the search.

I got 2 servers on the inet.

for special reasons etc testing bla die bla.

Server 1 :
Running sendmail and wants to relay its email to server 2 .

Server 2 :
Running postfix and a webhostingserver etc.


server 1 configures server 2 as a smtp
and server 2 the postfix server must relay all email from the ip of server 1

the question is how do i let postfix know that i trust all traffic from that ip ?


i cant find it etc.

please help im on a deadline

it's all in the default postfix file... check the "mynetworks_style = host" and "mynetwork= 1.2.3.4" options
