    Hey guys.

    First off, I think you guys should run a report of all the users that post the most on this forum. I bet i'm up there.

    LOL

    But anyways, to my problem... I just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.04 ubuntu and now I can't send mail from my external clients. I have them using authentication but still no luck. Is there anything that I need to enable or anything in one of the config files that would of been re-written?

    Thanks

    Okay, Fixed it.

    Run the following:

    Code:
    adduser postfix sasl
    /etc/init.d/postfix restart
