Exim4 relay to hosting prob


Hi
Iam using exim4 as a smarthost to relay emails to my hosting server, the problem is that iam using mutt to send emails internally but I cant seem to sen data outside of the domain...below is an extract from my mailog file :


2006-05-04 22:08:13 1FbjBN-0002z6-81 <= ali.jawad@nocclb.com U=ali P=local S=455 id=20060504190813.GA11471@nocclb.com
2006-05-04 22:08:57 1FbjBN-0002z6-81 ** m_alameh@hotmail.com R=smarthost T=remote_smtp_smarthost: SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data: host nocclb.com [65.75.128.46]: 550 Administrative prohibition
2006-05-04 22:08:57 1FbjC5-0002z9-5N <= <> R=1FbjBN-0002z6-81 U=Debian-exim P=local S=1349

Tell me if I understand your setup. You are trying to send mail from nocclb.com (65.75.128.46) to a remote server, which is then supposed to relay it to the final destination.

In the given scenario, you are trying to send mail from ali.jawad@nocclb.com to m_alameh@hotmail.com from 65.75.128.46. 65.75.128.46 is supposed to take delivery, and send it to a remote server, which is supposed to deliver it to hotmail.com. Is this correct?

If so, it looks like the remote server is not configured to relay messages from 65.75.128.46. Unless you configure it to accept messages for relay from a given host, it will only accept messages for local delivery.

If I have properly understood the setup, do you have Exim running on the remote server, or what? If I am wrong about the setup, please clarify.

Exim4 relay to hosting prob

Ive been setting my up my own mail server on my debian sarge box Iam using exim4 for a week now...everything is fine exept relaying email to my smtp..Ive read every possible paper on the subject and I dont seem to have forgotten anythin..
Iam using plain authenication...

Ive added "AUTH_CLIENT_ALLOW_NOTLS_PASSWORDS = 1" to exim4.conf.template and I run the update-exim4.conf utility...

Ive set all the options in update exim4.conf.conf correctly...

# /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf
#
# Edit this file and /etc/mailname by hand and execute update-exim4.conf
# yourself or use 'dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config'

dc_eximconfig_configtype='smarthost'
dc_other_hostnames='mydomain.com'
dc_local_interfaces='127.0.0.1'
dc_readhost=''
dc_relay_domains=''
dc_minimaldns='false'
dc_relay_nets='192.168.1.0/24'
dc_smarthost='mysmtp.com'
CFILEMODE='644'
dc_use_split_config='false'
dc_hide_mailname='false'
dc_mailname_in_oh='true'
dc_localdelivery=maildir_home
#host_auth_accept_relay = *


Ive set my password in passwd.client

### CONFDIR/passwd.client
#
# Format:
#targetmailserver.example:loginassword
#
# default entry:
mysmtp.com:myusername:mypassword


But I still get the following error in the mailog when I use mutt to send an email outside of my linux box..below I was trying to send an email from my email ali.jawad@mysmtp.com "set as an alias to my account on the debian box" to my_mail@gmail.com... first the error happens "SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data: host mysmpt.com [xx.xx.xx.xx "my smtp address"]: 550 Administrative prohibition" and then when the mailer tries to send me an email to my alias ali.jawad@mysmtp.com I get an unroutable address problem..this is no big deal..I wana get rid of the first error first..

2006-05-08 13:21:40 1Fd2s0-0000TS-Jx <= ali.jawad@mysmtp.com U=ali P=local S=452 id=20060508102140.GC1812@mysmtp.com

2006-05-08 13:22:28 1Fd2sm-0000TV-2c ** ali.jawad@mysmtp.com: Unrouteable address
2006-05-08 13:22:28 1Fd2sm-0000TV-2c Frozen (delivery


!!!- UPON FURTHER INVESTIGATION I FOUND THE FOLLOWING INFO AT MY HOSTING COMPNANY -!!!

I can't send email. What's wrong?
Our SMTP servers are configured as secure relays. This means that you cannot simply reference "mail.yourdomain.com" as an Outgoing mailserver unless you successfully log in via one of your pop3 accounts at "mail.yourdomain.com' before you try to send. This is a mandatory setting to prevent spammers from using our mailservers as havens for unsolicited email. If you are getting a "relaying prohibited" or "disconnected by administrator" error, it means that you haven't logged into the pop3 server at your domain before you tried to send through the smtp server at your domain. To log in, you need to check for mail first
