    Hello, I'm pretty new to Linux and have installed VMWare Player and SUSE Enterprise on a Windows 7 Dell Laptop. I'm trying to set up POSTFIX for outbound emails, such as daily emails of file system, Oracle logs, etc..

    I have set up a separate Verizon email address, so I'm using as my relayhost.

    I actually followed a post on this site(Relaying Emails Through Another Mailserver).

    My issues is that I keep getting the time out messages. I've looked at everything from TLS parameters, the and files, doing something with scaling(?), you name it.. I haven't been able to find anything concrete online which addresses my specific problem.

    Is there a set list of configuration parameters which I need to modify? Maybe a checklist?

    The exact error I'm hitting at this point is: ..conversation with[...............] timed out while receiving the initial server greeting

    I can send whatever you need, but I didn't want to post all my config parms yet :)

    Never mind. I figured this out.
