    I am running suse 10.0 and everthing has been running fine until I noticed that that I could no longer redirect emails to my mobile, after checking my mail server I found that iI could receive emails but couldn`t send them.
    I know that some dynamic IP`s can cause a problem so i rebooted my router box to obtain a different Ip, which after a few attempts my dynamic IP was changed from 88.105.6.209 to 88.105.127.86

    However I can still not send email
    My mail log is:

    Almost all dynamic IP addresses are blacklisted nowadays, so changing the IP address doesn't help. You can try to relay your emails through another mailserver (e.g. the one of your ISP): http://www.howtoforge.com/postfix_relaying_through_another_mailserver

    Please replace check_relay_domains with reject_unauth_destination in /etc/postfix/main.cf and restart Postfix.

    I am having the same problem. I can receive mail, but I cannot send.

    I am using Fedora Core 6.

    Everything else is set up great. I just can't get the mail to work correctly. Where can I go to get the mail logs? (sorry, I'm pretty much a newb)

    I can't send mail via email client on networked computer (Thunderbird on Windows XP) or through webmail on the server (using SquirrelMail)

    Nevermind, I figured out the problem. For some reason my IP Address was on a black list. Once it was removed, everything is ok now.

    Thanks falko,
    After seaching the net i found that my ISP (tiscali) was the main cause of the
    problem and they are still having many issues with their amil servers.
    If iwas to change ISP`s would i just overight the previous script? here www.howtoforge.com/postfix_relaying_through_another_mailserver
    If anyone is interested I found a great ISP that offers a home package from £9.49 per month including a static IP . Also business broadband from £25 per month including up to 8 static IP`s.
    If it`s ok with falko and till i will post the link here.

    Regards shajazzi

    Yes, you have to modify /etc/postfix/main.cf if the mailserver changes.

    Yes, you can post it.

    I have found that Newnet can offer home broadband from as little as £9.95 including 1 static ip with the option of buying up to eight additional IP`s for a very small fee. Also business broadband from £25 plus vat
    Up to 8Mb download speed and up to 448kbps upload speed and this is the important bit no packet shaping. http://www.newnet.co.uk/
    Also this can be done on a monthly basis so that you are no tied up for 12 months. So if you are not happy after a month then you can simply leave.

    With all the recent security issues and empty promises from Tiscali i thought it was time for a change
