    Hi folks.

    I've got server running sweetly but I do still have one issue that's bugging me.

    I can rx mail but not tx it so...
    What's the config I should put into the mail client (Thunderbird) so that will actually connect and send.

    Oh yes... I installed according to Falko's "perfect Server" tutorial, which I followed very precisely. And the server is the current 10.x.x LTS version.

    1) Use the domain, hostname of the server or IP address as smtp and pop3 server.
    2) The email address is the smtp and pop3 username.
    3) enable smtp authentication.

    Thanks Till.

    That's pretty much what I've been doing. The only teaser is what form of auth is used, STARTLS or SSL/TLS and what encryption method, if any.

    I've been getting a "relay access denied" message too.

    Make sure you don't have 'Use Secure Authentication' checked for your SMTP server.

    Email address is your user name and use STARTTLS.

    Also, for the 'relay access denied', make sure you have 'permit_sasl_authenticated' in your 'smtpd_sender_restrictions' inside your /etc/postfix/

    Also ensure mynetworks is set in

    It should have mynetworks = ip.ip.ip.ip/net

    Where ip.ip.ip.ip/net is your external IP and network, although /net isn't required if you just have one IP.
