    this is a section from the mail log that you mentioned. This is what i belive is causing the problem in sending mail to the server.

    i have attached it to a text file which is below.

    It should be the main.cf file problem, so you need to modify main.cf file. The following configuration is copy from my mail server for you reference.

    smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
    permit_mynetworks
    permit_sasl_authenticated
    reject_unauth_destination
    reject_invalid_hostname


    If you want to know detail information, refer to postfix website, but due to i can't post URLs, so please use this keyword smtpd_recipient_restrictions to search in postfix website.
