    It is quite possible that Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. are unable to do a reverse DNS lookup on your server (which they require), so they are rejecting your emails. If you are running this off your residential 'net connection, you are probably SOL, since the only way to get reverse DNS enable is by your ISP, who would probably not take kindly to you running a server....

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
