Falko I am using localhost for the time being and yes I am hiding the IP addresses in this posting thus they begin with 00. I'm surprised that no one else had the same issue as I used the tutorial 3 times and got the same result.
Regarding the below two items where would you being your troubleshooting?
What is really odd is that when use a mail client to send and receive through port 2525 seems to be working fine. However, all emails that are sent out are addressed with the server name "firstname.lastname@example.org" and also "email@example.com".
When sending an email from the system, localhost, using Java Mail and using SMTP setting mail.example.com through port 2525 all emails are marked as "Relay Access Denied".
