    I see there is quite a number of these question but none of them helped me and I am quite new to Linux. Any help would be appreciated.
    I can receive mail but the system does not send at all and this is the error I get in the email queue of ISP3config

    7FFA24815C5 1192 Sun Jun 14 10:29:25 (my email address)
    (host mx2.bne.server-mail.com[203.147.156.194] refused to talk to me: 554 bne3-0002mz.server-mail.com - Connection refused 120.146.28.36 listed on PBL DNS RBL)


    I tried another email address and similar error.

    Any ideas what this would mean?

    Your IP adress is blacklisted in the PBL DNS RBL Blacklist. Most likely you host the server at home and all external mail servers block addresses from home dsl or cable providers to prevent spam. So the issue is not a server configuration problem, the problem is your IP address. You can either move the server into a datacenter with a fixed IP address or you send out emails trough a external relay server (e.g. the smtp server of your access provider). You can configure the relay server under System > server config > email.

    I suggest to use Mandrill to send email instead of wasting your energy on blacklisted IP (Gmail SMTP might be a good choice too)

    Hi till

    I have configured the system to use an external relay server as you suggested, but now I am struggling with SASL authentication. I have tried and checked everything as described in previous posts with similar problems. PLEASE HELP any ideas where to start.

    Sasl authentication on which server? On the server f your isp that you use for sending now or on your ispconfig server when you connect to it from your desktop email client?

    Not sure . It seems that the isp3config postfix server is working correctly but emails cannot be sent and when I look at the email error logs I get the error SASLauthentication

    Check the file /etc/postfix/master,cf and ensure that there is no # in front of the lines that start with "smtps" and "submission".
