Default Relay access denied when using SMTP to external recipients

Unable to send emails to any domains not hosted locally on this server via SMTP client. If I do the same using SMTP client I receive NDR and below message in my /var/log/maillog.

Oct 10 12:12:12 portal postfix/smtpd[9641]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from gateway[195.xx.xx.xxx]: 554 <me@yahoo.com>: Relay access denied; from=<me@mydomain.com> to=<me@yahoo.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<Inbox>

Everything works fine if I use web mail client UebiMiau except UebiMiau translates internal emails to me@mydomain.com@myserverhostname.com. But at it lets me send emails to me@yahoo.com without any problem, see the log message below which works perfectly.

Oct 10 12:25:32 portal postfix/smtp[9943]: 78FFA485C8E: to=<me@yahoo.com>, relay=mx2.mail.yahoo.com[], delay=23, status=sent (250 ok dirdel)

I have read few threads where people are facing this error "Relay access denied" but couldn't really find the resolution for my problem.

I have perfectly installed ISPConfig on FC4 without any problems. /etc/postfix/main.cf has following entry as per installation instruction. I have tried check_relay_domains appears same after restarting postfix.

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated,permit_mynetworks,reject _unauth_destination
