Please contact your internet access provider and ask them if they block port 25.

Did you set up relaying as shown here? http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_relaying_through_another_mailserver

Relaying is for sending from your server, but now you're sending to your server?

i was sending a email to suppor@domain.com from my hotmail account then i got that email back to hotmail with that info. (even gmail did the same)

sending emails from support@domain.com is just fine but i cant recive anything...

Is server.xxx.com[90.xxx.xxx.180] your server? Are there any errors in the mail log?

too many hops usually means that there are too many servers involved in delivering the mail.
Do you use fetchmail to fetch the mails from another server, or do you use a spamfilter somewhere in the chain?
What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

Allantheking

this is my maincf

falko

Looks ok, except that you have some options twice in main.cf (please comment the double options out and restart Postfix).

Do you get this problem with every domain you're sending to, or just with one?

I think that it might somehow have to do with your relay server. Does the relay server maybe forward the mails back to your server which then forwards it again to the relay server?

Im not too sure what the problem is ill fix the main.cf when i get home but i dont see it making the problem :confused:

is the problem sending or receiving email ?
If it is receiving, try using www.network-tools.com to make an email connection.

that does not look correct to me, there should be a valid ip address in there, no?

Give falko or till access to your server.
They WILL fix it.

Only problem might be (for you) that you will need to pay for the support.
On the other site the nice thing is that you will have a nice working server, and that they made some money :-)

You happy, they happy..

Allantheking
28th November 2007, 18:57
how much do they charge?
