postfix - seeing my domain as a relay

    Hello, I'm trying to set up a Mac OSX (snow leopard server) mail server.

    I've got it so that it is receiving mail O.K. from anywhere.

    It is also allowing me to send email to accounts that are within my domain.

    What I haven't been able to figure out is why I can't send to other domains.

    When I send from my domain to an outside domain, it see's it as a disallowed relay.

    Any advice?

    Here is some additional info.
    No errors in the /var/log/mail.log

    sh-3.2# postconf -n smtpd_recipient_restrictions
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated permit_mynetworks reject_unauth_destination check_policy_service unix:private/policy permit

    sh-3.2# postconf -n myorigin
    myorigin = (my domain)

    sh-3.2# postconf -n mynetworks
    mynetworks =,

    Just to potentially close this post...

    I selected a setting that requires an authentication for my SMTP prefs.. which now lets me send to "outside" domains.

    I have to use a password from one of my email accounts for all the email users that I have configured on my email client however.. which I don't really like.

    So, though it is "fixed", if someone has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.

    Btw, thanks to the owners of this site, I have come here over the years and have always found great information.
