Default The Perfect SpamSnake - Ubuntu 12.04 - No mail getting through from the outside


Hi All,

I have just completed putting together a spam snake using the software and how-to named The Perfect SpamSnake - Ubuntu Jeos 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin, which is put together very nicely.

However I can't seem to receive email from the outside world.

If I telnet into the server from a machine inside the local network I am able to send an email to a user hosted on my exchange 2007 email server, but when I try from external sources I get an error. I also can't receive email from my googlemail account.

I have attached a copy of the mail.log, however if you need more information I'll gladly post it.

Thanks in advance,
