I have installed Webmin/Virtmin on Centos 5. I can recieve emails but cannot send out any emails. I know its some configuration on the email server which should permit my IP address or domain to relay email but I cant find that.

I can send outbound email from the user mailbox on the server through Webmin/Virtmin.
