Postfix newbie - send to ISP SMTP server not working
 
I thought I'd try postfix (after seeing the evil that is sendmail and even its m4 syntax, yuch) as it was easy. Well using fetchmail I receive fine, but mail does not get to my ISPs SMTP server.

(I've replaced my real domain name with domain.com)
I use several pop3 boxes to hold my mail on the internet. The main one is domain.com. I use fetchmail to grab the mail and stuff it into postfix. That works very well. I can then use squirrelmail with my imap and pop3 servers to view my mail. However, sending of mail does not work. I cannot find the answer, nor any bounce messages!

Please read the details and suggest any options, thanks in advance.

Some details:

ISP = pandora.be, cable modem
Me = RH 7.3 on intel
local domain = 192.168.0.x on eth1, 213.119.x.x from ISP DHCP on eth0
ISPs SMTP server = smtp.pandora.be

I've successfully telneted in there and using SMTP command syntax sent a mail to my self at hotmail! Transcript:

[root@mars postfix]# telnet smtp.pandora.be 25

No problems at my hotmail inbox, everything is great. Just postfix wont transport mail for me and I don't know why.

My main.cf stripped of comments looks like:

queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix

daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix

A complete config dump of postfix using postconf yields

would you mind doing us all a favour and just posting the relavant parts of it. this can be done with postconf -n. Please run that command and print the result here. Also what is your postfix version?

>> would you mind doing us all a favour and just posting the relavant parts of it.
which bits exactly are relevant? If I knew the answer to that, I'd be a long way to solving the problem for myself.
