    hi all,

    I am having a funny one.....
    I moved my server from my office to an ISP.
    One of the websites i host has an tiscali email address, but the domain is a different name.

    My maillog states

    Feb 23 15:33:21 thor2 postfix/smtp[32453]: 8DD8484E01E: host mx1.uk.tiscali.com[212.74.100.147] refused to talk to me: 554 imp-6.mail.tiscali.sys Message declined - No PTR record found for 194.168.31.36

    Feb 23 15:33:21 thor2 postfix/smtp[32453]: 8DD8484E01E: host mx5.uk.tiscali.com[212.74.100.151] refused to talk to me: 554 imp-7.mail.tiscali.sys Message declined - No PTR record found for 194.168.31.36
    Feb 23 15:33:21 thor2 postfix/smtp[32452]: 8DD8484E01E: to=<[email protected]>, relay=smtpin.tesco.net[81.103.221.10]:25, delay=0.86, delays=0.08/0.03/0.2/0.55, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 Message received: [email protected]stems.co.uk)
    Feb 23 15:33:21 thor2 postfix/smtp[32453]: 8DD8484E01E: to=<[email protected]>, relay=mx4.uk.tiscali.com[212.74.100.150]:25, delay=0.95, delays=0.08/0.04/0.83/0, dsn=4.0.0, status=deferred (host mx4.uk.tiscali.com[212.74.100.150] refused to talk to me: 554 imp-8.mail.tiscali.it Message declined - No PTR record found for 194.168.31.36 )

    what and how do i change to allow this email through my server?
    is it main.cf and look for relay? or can i specify the email direct in a file to allow it through, it only sends out from my server, does not receive..

    It says:

    No PTR record found for 194.168.31.36

    Ask yout ISP to set up a PTR record and than it should work.

    i contacted them and they said i have complete control over the server, and i should be able to create one myself
    I built the computer and took it in..

    The PTR record for 194.168.31.36 must be created by your ISP.

    smtp errors

    got ptr record made, sorted ish,

    we still have a problem, tlsystems.co.uk sends - i have an zencart site which sends no problem.

    Another domain has a problem sending emails, they dont go at all.. all on the same server.
    i tested by adding a user name i.e beth - username = webNO_beth and set a password
    I added to outlook express, smtp/pop server - set with ip and the as named server
    ticked my server requires authentication
    I get this error
    Mar 3 15:15:27 thor2 postfix/smtpd[5965]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from 81-86-27-166.dsl.pipex.com[81.86.27.166]: 554 5.7.1 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied; from=<[email protected]> to=<[email protected]> proto=ESMTP helo=<mainserver>

    SMTP Auth

    Don't know if I got your problem right. I guess the SMTP at your provider need an authentication as mine did. (Got such a weird "You need a PTR/PBL for your IP .." before.)

    If so, look here: Postfix-STMP-Auth
    This Tutorial describe how to store the authentication for postfix.


    Since I follow this tutorial my SMTP works fine for me, even for an other account that isn't hosted by this provider (complete different domain) !
