    DNS problem?

    If I try to send e-mail to some hosts, I receive the folllowing error message:
    Sender address rejected: Sender mailserver is an unreachable (RFC 191 IP 192.168.*.* 20050222.
    If I send an e-mail, the message source contains:
    Received: from myx9 [] for mail-local (HELO myx9) via
    SMTP; Thu, 16 Mar 2006 10:30:34 +0200.
    How can I make the message source to contains ip address of the server, not local ip address?
    I guess, the problem is from the fact that some servers verify my ip, they see it is from private class and don't accept it.
    Any other ideea? Thanks a lot.

    I get around this problem by sending via my ISP's smart SMTP relay. Surely your ISP has one of those? It doesn't take the private IP out of the mail header, but it does get added-to in the normal smtp way.

    Hmm, I know its not help as such, but changing it will not make much of a difference as a simple whois would show the ip.

    Have you got a domain of softs registered for it?
