I've set up postfix (Debian) and it works fine. I can recieve mail and I can send them, but I can only send them to local (and local virtual) adresses.

But when I try to send the mail for example to my Gmail account, I get this in syslog:

Jun 30 18:34:44 vps postfix/smtpd[9087]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from vps[]: 554 5.7.1 <hrdina.pavel@gmail.com>: Relay access denied; from=<info@w-cms.cz> to=<hrdina.pavel@gmail.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<localhost.localdomain>

I've googled a lot but I did figure it out thought. I think that something is wrong with my* directives. Here are mine:

myhostname = mail.xxx.cz
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = xxx.cz, vps, localhost.localdomain, localhost
relayhost =
mynetworks = [::ffff:]/104 [::1]/128
  • Isn't your hostname w-cms.cz?

You need to allow relaying for hosts you trust.

If vps has a static IP address, you might simply add it to mynetworks. Another popular option is to set up authentication between trusted hosts
