    I keep getting this error. I used the how-to virtual-users-and-domains-with-postfix-ubuntu-7.10.
    Code:
    Apr 13 22:43:39 server2 postfix/smtp[10988]: 77DCB7C119: to=<fshearer@elp.rr.com>, relay=hrndva-smtpin02.mail.rr.com[71.74.56.244]:25, delay=2193, delays=2193/0.01/0.43/0, dsn=4.0.0, status=deferred (host hrndva-smtpin02.mail.rr.com[71.74.56.244] refused to talk to me: 550-hrndva-mxlb.mail.rr.com 550 ERROR: Mail Refused - res.rr.com - See http://security.rr.com/rrDynamic.htm)
    . I saw something about removing relaying on smtp but dont know how to do that. Any help

    You are relaying mail from a dynamic address, you need to use your ISP's mail server as a smart host.

    When I set it up for a smarthost, the email address is that of the smtp server, not my virtual domain I want. How do I guess change the name to the domain name i am sending it from?
