Question Postfix wont send email


Hi everyone,
I am trying to run postfix as an email server. I can receive email without problems, but I can only send email from the machine to other address on the machine. I cannot send email out to an email address not on my server and when I try to send a test message to myself using the internet I receive a message "the specified server was found but there was no response from the server." Any suggestions

thanks
Rob

Your port 25 might be blocked by your ISP, like me.

If not, look carefully to your /etc/postfic/master.cf

I think it is the mydestination parameter.

it might be a port 25 issue, but it also could be a configuration problem. (the file to do most of the configuring is /etc/postfix/main.cf, not the master.cf, btw.)

you can output your options with:

postconf -n

post what you get so someone can help you figure it out.

Sorry, I mistakenly wrote master.cf. I wanted to write main.cf. There is where you should have the $mydestination settings.
