Postfix user@domain restricted mail relay configuration


I have rented a linux server that I would like to use as POP and SMTP server for my domain.

I installed postfix and dovecot and have been trying to configure them for a while no but with no success.

What I need is that only the users configured with postfix are able to send emails using my server as their SMTP server even when not connected to the local interface.

If you can recommend the config files, or maybe other GPL software that I can use, it would be great.

PS: Postfix is configured to run with the system users and not virtual users on a mysql database.

Thanks in advance

I don't have any links to HowTos for you, other than the official postfix docs for small home/home office setup. But you want SMTP AUTH to allow your remote users to authenticate and relay mail.

Search the forums here for SMTP AUTH postfix and dovecot.
