    Please contact your internet access provider and ask them if they block port 25.

    Relaying is for sending from your server, but now you're sending to your server?

    too many hops usually means that there are too many servers involved in delivering the mail.
    Do you use fetchmail to fetch the mails from another server, or do you use a spamfilter somewhere in the chain?
    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Looks ok, except that you have some options twice in main.cf (please comment the double options out and restart Postfix).

    Do you get this problem with every domain you're sending to, or just with one?

    I think that it might somehow have to do with your relay server. Does the relay server maybe forward the mails back to your server which then forwards it again to the relay server?

    is the problem sending or receiving email ?
    If it is receiving, try using www.network-tools.com to make an email connection.

    that does not look correct to me, there should be a valid ip address in there, no?
