    I have been reading through the posts and was unable to find a solution to my particular problem. This is what I get when I try to send an email to myself from my indiana.edu address.

    Code:
    The original message was received at Mon, 22 Jan 2007 08:00:32 -0500 (EST) from stjoseph.uits.indiana.edu [129.79.1.78]
    
       ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors ----- <[email protected]>
        (reason: 554 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied)
    
       ----- Transcript of session follows ----- ... while talking to mail.scratchco.com.:
    >>> DATA
    <<< 554 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied
    554 5.0.0 Service unavailable
    <<< 554 Error: no valid recipients
    
    and this is the log at /var/log/mail.log

    Code:
    [email protected]:~# tail -n 20 /var/log/mail.log

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, in the first log I see someone trying to relay as [email protected]. Does this present a threat?

    Please add the line:

    scratchco.com

    at the ond of the file:

    /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    and restart postfix.
