    relay denied

    Ho folks,

    I have setup sendmail version:

    noobian:/home/kevin# mail
    No mail for root
    noobian:/home/kevin# /usr/sbin/sendmail -d0.4 -bv root
    Version 8.12.3

    I can send mail to my ISP email account from the debian box, but when I fire up outlook express, and try and send mail using my debian box, I get the following error:

    The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was ''. Subject '', Account: 'Testaccount', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <>... Relaying denied. IP name lookup failed []', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

    ( address on my eth1)
    ( address on my windows box)

    Can anyone help me fix this problem?

    You need to allow relaying of mail from your user (or that ip-address...)

    in /etc/mail/access

    add the following

    Testaccount@* RELAY

    and restart the mail server (service sendmail restart if you run RedHat...)

    I'm not a 100% on the syntax in the file but look at the docs if unsure..
