Question qmail, imap and smtp help please

Having some trouble getting my qmail smtp server to work... what i have done i to set up qmail following the instructions, and installing vpopmail, Courier-IMAP and QmailAdmin so far so good... i can add users and everything is fine... sending mail to users on the server is no problem either... the problem comes when the users try to send mail using the smtp server... then i get the error that there not allowed to send to that specific host... except there own...

What i want is to allow the users to send emails thru my smtp server to anywhere in the world... but i dont wanna open the server to anyone since that would propably make it useful to spammers too...

anyone know how to set up qmail smtp server to allow any user i have to send outgoing mail to any host on the net?

thanks in advance....
