    I followed the perfect server tutorial for installing ISPC3 on debian squeeze.

    I've got a rather strange problem.

    I can receive email from outside
    I can send to other email accounts on the server

    BUT:
    I can't send mail to outside of the server.
    Nor by sendmail nor by SMTP (Outlook).

    There is nothing in the mail errors log, the following is in the mail info log:
    so... the server thinks the message has been sent.

    Did you send the email to webmaster@***.com or to another address?
    Is ***.com the external domain?

    Ok, your server handles this as local email address. This can have several reasons:

    a) The hostname of the server is ***.com
    b) You use ***.com somewhere in postfix main.cf, e.g. as mydomain or myhostname value
    c) ***.com is in /etc/mailname
    d) A Email domain ***.com has been created in ISPConfig
    e) ***.com is used in /etc/hosts, e.g. for the IP of the server.

    Till, danke, you are very good!

    In fact I had forgotten that I created the site/domain/email address of the other site on the server inpreparation of moving it there!

    Thank you very much !
