Default Relay access denied

Hello.

I keep having problems with Fedora 4.

First didnt get any email to my account. Now I have this problem:

The Postfix program

<joakim@xxxxx.xx>: host xxxxx.xx [195.197.xxx.xx] said: 554 <joakim@xxxxx.xx>:
Relay access denied (in reply to RCPT TO command)

Can you help me? Thanks!

You have to turn on SMTP-AUTH for your Postfix. Falko has just written a tutorial about how to do this on Fedora 4: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_fedora_core_4

And in your email client, you must activate "Server needs authentication" (or similar) to be able to send emails with your Postfix.

Unhappy HELP!! Relay access denied in UBUNTU 7.04 Server

HELP!! I install UBUNTU 7.04 as MailServer, the system let me receive mail, but don't let send external mail (

i follow the steps from
The Perfect Setup - Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server (Dapper Drake) - Page 5

so i don't know what to do.

I tried modify main.cf mynetworks including my local ip/24 but don't work.

I'm using outlook in my clients and when i check for "Server needs authentication" always ask for user and password, and i write it and ask me again and again and don't let me see if the mail has send.

(sorry my English its not good)

Are you sure that you use the correct username and password?
Any errors in your mail log?

What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf? Any errors in /var/log/mail.log?

What's the output of
Code:
telnet localhost 25
and then
Code:
ehlo localhost
?
