    Can you send an email to yourself?

    I just had this same problem and my postfix server would only allow my to send emails to my own domain.

    To allow the smtp (postfix) server to relay messages to other domains I had to add these lines to my /etc/postfix/main.cf

    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    smtpd_client_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated
    smtpd_sender_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination

    This will require you to authenticate yourself when you send mail. Once authenticated you can relay (send) to any domain.

    Hope this helps. I spent a while pulling my hair out!!

    Cheers,


    Jim;]
