    Hi,
    I've configured a mailserver following the "perfect mandriva server" howto. postfix is working partly, meaningmails are sent out.
    Zhe problem is, the server doesn't accept incoming mail, I'm getting a reply from my isp telling me

    Code:
    SMTP error from remote server after RCPT command:
    host xxxx.xxxxxxxxxxxx.xx[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:
    554 5.7.1 <xxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxx.xx>: Relay access denied
    Anybody an idea?

    Make sure that the MX record for your domain is pointing to the correct server. You can check that with
    Code:
    dig mx yourdomain.com

    Thanks for the reply, but in fact it was much simpler. The mailserver name is "mail.domain", the adresses are "name@domain".
    After adding "domain" to the "mydestination"-entry of main.cf it worked.
    No I have another problem...

    But I will start an extra threat for that...
