Postfix & MS-outlook
I have question about setting Outlook to sendmail. First, my Linux server which has postfix install on it. I can send & receive mail at this Linux box. I then try to setup Outlook on my windows computer to send and receive mail through this server. When I setup pop3, I can login, receive mail but can not send mail out. :(
Do I need to do anything with file to make it work? Or I have to do something else?
Please advise

You shouldn't need to do anything special. As long as postfix is running, it will be listening for incoming SMTP mail.

Try sending a mail from Outlook and looking at the log files for postfix. On my Mandrake system they are /var/log/mail/info, errors and warnings. They might give you a clue as to what is happening.

It say: ...
Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied;

What did I do wrong?

In the /etc/postfix/ file, check the "mydestination" parameter.

Try setting it to $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain
Also check that myhostname and mydomain are correctly set.

Check that the second comma is in place (between the two $mydomain's).

Now restart postfix and try sending again.
