Question Using Postfix the send email via another smtp server - to anyone.

I've been trying for days now to get a new RH 9.0 server to send emails via our companies (third party) smtp server. I first tried sendmail - yeah that sucked.

Switched to postfix! I can get emails to send to anyone with an email address from our domain. So assume my domain is anyone that has a email address will receive emails I send from this server.

When I try sending to someone outside the domain (which will be a very common occurance since this server will host our companies knowledge base) I get the following...

postfix/smtp[17500]: 84DDF38C051: to=<>,[###.###.###.###], delay=17, status=bounced (host[###.###.###.##] said: 553 <>... Not server for

What am I missing?

An email to someone in my domain returns this...

Jan 27 11:22:31 frodo sendmail[17667]: i0RGMVFk017667:, ctladdr=root (0/0), delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=relay, pri=30041, relay=[] [], dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent (Ok: queued as 2BFC738C051)
Jan 27 11:22:31 frodo postfix/nqmgr[17242]: 2BFC738C051: from=<>, size=487, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Jan 27 11:22:31 frodo postfix/smtpd[17669]: disconnect from localhost[]
Jan 27 11:22:33 frodo postfix/smtp[17672]: 2BFC738C051: to=<>,[###.###.###.###], delay=2, status=sent (250 LAA06317 Message accepted for delivery)

frodo = hostname
