Postfix sending mail failed

Hi

  Im just settingup my CentOS server with postfix mail settings.


Installation & Startingup of postfix was fine.

netstat -anl --tcp | grep 25
tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:25                  0.0.0.0:*                   LISTEN


iptables/firewall disabled.


NMap on the machine shows the following open ports.
Discovered open port 110/tcp on 322.271.12.231
Discovered open port 443/tcp on 322.271.12.231
Discovered open port 80/tcp on 322.271.12.231



I have attached maillog below. Can anyone understand why i cant send mail ?
/var/log/maillog Has the following error

do you have a content_filter=bla statement if you main.cf?
How did you enable it in the first place?

postfix does not use scanmail by default.

Is there a scanmail service that needs to be running?

Did you try

# service scanmail start
