Webmail Relay Error
Here is a new issue that poped up today.
I get this when sending email any one that is not on my ispconfig server, IE: hotmail, aol, local isp's, etc....
It was not possible to send this e-mail
SMTP Error: Recipient not accepted. Verify your relay rules
I always email to hotmail with no issues till today..any advice? I get this on any hotmail address or other domains in general.
Do you have this only with webmail or also with your pop3 e-mailclient?
Did you change your /etc/postfix/main.cf file?
Please check it and if you need to change it, restart postfix!
Maybe it is possible that your server is blacklisted due an open relay.
(I do not hope so)
You can check if you have an open relay at:
It is also doing it in my pop3/e-mail client software of outlook and mac mail on my mac. so it is not just web mail.
I have not made any changes to my main.cf sense i built this system, and that was months ago where as this problem just started.
I did reboot my router and it all kicked in with one exception..so my router was causing 95% of it.
now the remaining problem is i can use my pop3/outlook mail program using my ispconfig server smtp server to send to HOTMAIL and i get it. BUT when i use the web mail to send to HOTMAIL hot mail never gets it. (note: aol and others get my web mail but not hotmail)
here is a copy of the mail log after i sent a message in WEBMAIL to my HOTMAIL account (still yet to get the message in hotmail)

To be honest with you,
Normally i do not use Hotmail, but i wanted to check wat was happening...
I did a test and i discovered that when i send an e-mail to hotmail, it will never reach the mailbox...
I guess we need a little help here.
Please ask Hotmail why they are blocking emails that originate directly from localhost. Maybe it's because of missing SPF records or PTR records or some other stupid spam rule... :(
Yes we should do that.
In The Netherlands a lot of people can only send e-mail using the SMTP-server of their Internet Service Provider.
Otherwise they will have always a Relay error.
Reason for this is an ANTI-SPAM policy.
My instruction to my clients:
Use the POP3-server at my server and use your own SMTP-server.
Maybe this is NOT a sulution for the problem, but it is a practical one.
in the meantime Falko, is there a way to trick the webmail in ISPConfig to get the messages through being as the messages DO GO THROUGH when i use the ispconfig servers SMTP via Outlook?
Okay I found something out...I can get mail in hotmail when i address to multiple people in a field like to or cc but ONLY as long as the hotmail address is not last and here is why.
I found in AOL mail & hotmail looking at the headers of message's sent from my ISPConfig's webmail that it is putting quotes and @domain.com added to the end of the last email address in the address field.
here is an example of one that i got in hotmail because the hotmail address was not the last address:
From : Shane O'Neill <shane@*******.com>
Reply-To : "Shane O'Neill" <shane@*******.com>
Sent : Tuesday, April 18, 2006 5:13 AM
TO: *****@hotmail.com, "*****@aim.com"@on****cs.com
Subject : webmail sent tuesday! test 2
If you notice in bold it puts in quotes and adds my servers domain to the last address.
What is causing this???
