thanks

it's not fixed but i know why you got the "relay access denied" and why i can't sent mail

read the last bit of text from "3b. Install Dovecot" from here:

http://www.mysql-apache-php.com/#mailserver

i just need to setup SASL correctly.. if i knew how.. i did what it said :\

No - you shouldn't need to relay mail I send to you from outside unless you are forwarding to another internal server.

Is the domain name you gave me in mydestination in main.cf (hence my request for postconf -f)

Edit - did my connection show up in you logs - you should see a relaying denied at your end too.

are you sure it really sounds like a problem with the sasl setup

and the mydestination it commented out like you suggested but there are 2 in there:

# mydestination = ubuntu, localhost.localdomain, , localhost

# mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

(a side not my hostname is server1 not the old ubuntu??)


dit: yes it did show up (i emailed it)

if you type "hostname" at the command prompt, do you get something like ubuntu.thenameyousentme.com (where thenameyousentme.com is the same as the rhs of your email address)

Hmm- may stuff up postfix.

Set

mydomain = thenameyousentme.com
myhostname = ubuntu.thenameyousentme.com
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain, localhost

And I'll resend an email.

Authentication shouldn't be necessary where your server is the final destination (servers out in the ether can't authenticate to you)

I notice I made your logs before, that's good.

Did the mail arrive - I haven't received a rejection yet, and that's good too.

i really hate to be a pain but i have 1 last little question:

i setup a second mail address on a second domain but it's coming from the first domain (username2@domain1.com)

so how do i set a mail account to a domain?

The easiest way is to set it in your mail client

but i mean if (for example) if someone send an email to me@domain1.com and something@domain2.com they will both show from *@domain1.com

should i just look at there username's (user@*.com) and ignore this or can it be easily fixed?
