Default Sending email problem Bellsouth

I have a new installation everything works great except sending mail. My ISP is Bell South, Iíve tried the opt out port 25 though their web site have yet to get a response. I also tried to use the post bybagpiperdude90

relayhost = mail.bellsouth.net
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd

and then also made the sasl_passwd file, with this inside it:

mail.bellsouth.net usernameassword

but, mail will not go thur.

I telnet mail.bellsouth.net and get this

server1:~# telnet mail.bellsouth.net 25

I can't help much with the smartrelay configuration. What I can help with (maybe) is the telnet testing.

It looks like you might need to specify a host name on the "helo" line. I can't test that right now with bellsouth's servers - I get "telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: No route to host".

If you aren't familiar with authsmtp testing via telnet, there's info available at http://www.raiden.net/?aid=200

It might help to connect to port 587 instead of port 25, and user your auth credentials. Or it might not - yesterday when I tried to do a telnet test to port 485 on BellSouth's servers I got a route error.

When you created your domain, did you check the "Create DNS" and "Create DNS-MX" boxes? If so, I think it should have created your MX record.

Default Still not working

I don't know, tried everthing. Now I'm getting these errors.

Jul 23 20:52:59 server1 postfix/smtp[30404]: fatal: open database /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd.db: Invalid argument

the text in the sasl_passwd.db file is simple "[mail.bellsouth.net] xxxxxxx@bellsouth.net:xxxxxxx
but there is something there postfix doesn't like. also get this error

Jul 23 20:53:00 server1 postfix/master[25433]: warning: process /usr/lib/postfix/smtp pid 30404 exit status 1
Jul 23 20:53:00 server1 postfix/master[25433]: warning: /usr/lib/postfix/smtp: bad command startup -- throttling

I have no idea.


The wost thing just happen.............I fixed it.......I just don't know what I did

I redid the sasl_passwd.db file, it had an extra line at the end and a tab between the host and user name removed those and now it works. I don't know could that be it or did I do something else I can't remember.... Anyway thanks so much for the help A very happy Charlie
