Default ISPConfig, Postfix, Courier: Cannot send or read mail

I have Debian 5 Linux box running ISPConfig 2. I am having trouble with my mail server.

Using a mail client like Outlook or Thundermail, I cannot logon to my mail server and receive mail.

With the RoundCube package, I can logon to a user I created, but cannot send mail from the RoundCube interface.

I have my MX records pointing at my mail server. I can send a message and it shows in my RoundCube inbox, but the contents of the message are never loaded, and as I mentioned before an external mail client like Outlook cannot retrieve the mail.

I'm not sure where to begin. I don't know if the trouble is with a mysql database or if a configuration file isn't set up properly. Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Kyle

When I send from within Roundcube...

Code:

May 12 10:53:08 kyleserver1 postfix/smtp[4843]: 132003D841D: to=<XXXXX@gmail.com>, relay=gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[74.125.93.114]:25, delay=31, delays=0.09/0.06/0.78/30, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[74.125.93.114] said: 550-5.7.1 [67.160.31.122] The IP you're using to send mail is not authorized to 550-5.7.1 send email directly to our servers. Please use the SMTP relay at your 550-5.7.1 service provider instead.

May 12 10:53:08 kyleserver1 postfix/cleanup[4839]: 69F883D849C: message-id=<20090512175308.69F883D849C@kyleserver1.kylekarhohs.me>

May 12 10:53:08 kyleserver1 postfix/qmgr[26204]: 132003D841D: removed
This error says I'm not authorized to send mail?

When I send to Roundcube

Code:

from=<XXXXX@gmail.com>, size=2067, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
May 12 10:58:01 kyleserver1 postfix/local[5047]: 885DB3D841D: to=<web2_kyle@kyleserver1.kylekarhohs.me>, orig_to=<isth@kylekarhohs.me>, relay=local, delay=3.7, delays=0.3/0.01/0/3.4, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (forwarded as 292E53D8498)
May 12 10:58:01 kyleserver1 postfix/qmgr[26204]: 885DB3D841D: removed
May 12 10:58:27 kyleserver1 postfix/smtpd[5042]: disconnect from qw-out-1920.google.com[74.125.92.150]
May 12 10:58:33 kyleserver1 postfix/smtp[5078]: 292E53D8498: to=<XXXXX@gmail.com>, orig_to=<isth@kylekarhohs.me>, relay=gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[209.85.201.114]:25, delay=32, delays=0.01/0.01/0.39/32, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 OK 1242151113 30si324818wfg.30)
May 12 10:58:33 kyleserver1 postfix/qmgr[26204]: 292E53D8498: removed

Am I not able to read the messages because they are being removed?

I am using Mac Mail as my mail client. When I try to setup my email account on ISPConfig, I do not know what to put for incoming mail server and outgoing mail server. Do I need to create a virtual mail server, e.g. mail.kylekarhohs.me?

Thanks for the help

You need to use your ISP's smtp server as a smarthost.

Thanks topdog, but I do not know what that means. I thought my mail server was an smtp server. Could you be more detailed in your explanation?
