Try using /etc/mail/access file

Hi,

I think you should use /etc/mail/access file.. this file contains the IP addresses of the machines which are allowed to be relayed.

e.g. /etc/mail/access may contain lines --

localhost.localdomain RELAY
localhost RELAY
127.0.0.1 RELAY
192.168.0.1 RELAY

Above file says that machine 192.168.0.1 is allowed to relay mails.

If it doesnt work, remove all the entries in /etc/mail/relay-domain file..

It should do..

Regards..
