    problem solved
    i'd like to share solution for who may need it

    first of all, Cause of cant send mails any mail except local ones is my isp blocks 25. port ,thats why i decided to use a relay host u can choose one of free smtp servers for this ,like smtp.live.com(hotmail) or smtp.gmail.com(google) but here's the thing i'd like to say

    1-update the roots certificates ,
    google "using-gmail-for-outbound-email" this link is really usefull for configuration

    2-be carefull about exatcly the same adress lines ,in main.cf file and in sasl_passwd (this is the password file to connect gmail or hotmail smtp servers)

    i mean if your entry in main.cf

    relay_host = [smtp.live.com]:587

    this must be in sasl_passwd

    [smtp.live.com]:587 user_name@hotmail.com:your_hotmail_password

    pay attention to parenthesis

    the last thing is i recomend u guys hotmail as smtp server because gmail rewrite the "from" parts of mails ,hotmail doesnt touch anything

    by the way im using dynamic ip to connect internet i mean this is my local home server and local domain for enjoy ,configurations may be different for real domains
