    I've followed the tutorial perfect server ubuntu 11.04, and everything is working pretty good, But when I send a message or receive from my external account it doesn't work, because my ISP is blocking the port 25, so, I went to no-ip webpage and add an "alternate smtp" and "reflector", now I can receive message using the port 587, but when I setup the to use auth sasl, like no-ip said, sending message doesn't work. here is the setup for smtp:
    Use the following settings:

    Outgoing SMTP Server:
    Port Number: 3325 or 587
    Username: [email protected]
    Password: <Set on, see above.
    Defaults to your No-IP account password>

    smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    relayhost = [mail.isp.example]
    # Alternative form:
    # relayhost = [mail.isp.example]:submission
    smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd

    # destination credentials
    [mail.isp.example] username:password
    # Alternative form:
    # [mail.isp.example]:submission username:password

    What else do I need to do?

    receiving port 25 easy workaround

    I found easy solution for my receiving problem (blocked port 25) from

    to shell (as su)
    Inspired by DydDNS discounts, I took 1y for EmailGateway
    Also I made MX settings on domain DNS
    Now I should find out how to add that to ISPConfig firewall-script (that applies also on reboot...) - anyone with good advice, let me know (I found only quote old howtoforge-posts...)

    now I needed smtp-relay as well

    My ISP closed sending port after few trials, so now I added relay as well.

    Got it running w/o pain based on

    I am using one of my (new/extra) ISP-email-accounts just to login to ISP's smtp (as relay i.e normal ports OK).....

    Now now both receiving and sending working like a charm for all server1-accounts :D
