    Firewall is not the issue here since the relay access denied message is from the smtp server which talks with your email client but refuses to relay messages. If you are using postfix, check the following settings in /etc/postfix/main.cf
    smtpd_client_restrictions
    mynetworks


    For your POP3 issue, make sure
    1) your pop server is up and running, I use dovecot with postfix 99% of the time
    2) your pop server listens on the LAN address instead of 127.0.0.1

    POP issue

    thank you it appears that even though the pop service was started the smtpd_client section was missing from the main.cf
