Postfix & sasl on VMWARE(Ubuntu) - Not Working, what's wrong?

P: 1
Hi,

I'am trying to configure a Postfix server to send e-mails by SMTP using the SMTP server of my ISP. I have made a Postfix installation as "Internet with Smarthost".

I'am using a domain in Godaddy, I have point "A (Host) Record" to my IP and the "MX Record" is also pointing to my IP. I have tested sending e-mail from my gmail.com account to my server, the server receive e-mails from gmail.com to my /home/andre/mbox successfully.



So... I have installed Ubuntu server with Postfix and I installed also libsasl2-modules.

In my configuration to get my Postfix sending e-mails by SMTP using my ISP SMTP(my ISP SMTP requires authentication), my guide was: http://newbiedoc.berlios.de/wiki/Mail_-_sending

I have tested "telnet mydomain.com 25" from another computer with another IP address on the Internet and I get:

220 mydomain.com ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu)



After doing the changes related in this tutorial, http://newbiedoc.berlios.de/wiki/Mail_-_sending (I don't have configurated SSL Support)

After all this, here is my /var/log/mail.log

Oct 5 12:43:52 myhost postfix/anvil[4979]: statistics: max connection rate 1/60s for (smtp:74.125.92.24) at Oct 5 12:40:00

Best Regards, Andre.
