    hi ,

    i have hosted 3 sites on my ispconfig server. my isp (internet service provider) doesnt allows me to send emails to outside world through Isp says i can only use their smtp server and user name and password to send outside.

    this explains the connection timeout i get in maillog

    can i set up ispconfig such that for all the accounts it can send out through

    To send mail trough the smtp server of your provider, set the relayhost directive in the postfix file.

    guys this is the best forum i have seen.

    yes i modified the relayhost and i made the sasl_passwrd according to the thread above.

    restarted postfix
    but even after that i get this message in my thunderbird when i try to send it outside it says 530 authentication required.

    Did you enable the "My server requires authentication" in the email client?

    What exactly is in your mail log when you try to send a mail?

    What changes did you do to enable relaying through another mail server?
