    i installed a new server ubuntu server 9.10 with lamp, etc.

    after which i followed the following tutorial to setup

    Postfix, DoveCot, Squirell

    It was working fine till here. After which i installed the spamassain which also got configured perfectly.

    I can send only 1 or 2 mails after which i get error

    here is my confid file of postfix

    The config of my host file.
    I get the following error when i try to send emails.

    The mail system

    <[email protected]>: host[70.38.xx.xx] said: 550 Access
    denied - Invalid HELO name (See RFC2821 (in reply to MAIL FROM

    or if i play with the config

    <[email protected]>:[70.38.xx.xx] said:
    550-( [] is currently not permitted to relay
    550-through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap
    server 550-in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned
    on in your 550 email client. (in reply to RCPT TO command)

    Fully frustrated with this, anyhelp or a link for this problem will be helpfull.
