Arrow Relaying denied when sendig mail outside

Ok , I've installed clamAV and Mailscanner. When I was trying to get Mailscanner to work with clamAV I got compile errors. So I uninstalled Mailscanner and ClamAV which I hoped will solve the following problem but it didn't.

I get this error when trying to send an email to the outside world (mozilla) :

An error occured while sending mail. The mail server responded : 5.7.1
<>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed [] please check the message recipients and try again.

Local mail works fine.

Please Help!!

What mail server are you running? Sendmail? Postfix? Qmail? Add your internal network ( I suppose) to the list of allowed relaying hosts. This is parameter mynetwork in postfix.

Have you added your network addess range to /etc/mail/access that allows hosts submitting e-mail from your LAN to RELAY through your server?

Please see:

for a description of the access file format.

Thanks , I got it working !!! It seems webmin doesn't allow you to say relay for 192.168.10 but manually editing the file works.
