To postmaster's point
You need to configure exchange's relay rules to allow the postfix system the rights to relay.

arnoldCommented:
the error points to a configuration issue where your postfix mailing recipient is not identifiable by the MX/valid domain check on the exchange.

does "domain.net" exist?

on your exchange or postfix, nslookup -q=mx domain.net or dig domain.net MX respectively.

The domain check is an anti-spam method used to check whether the domain of a sender is valid (have an MX record or an A record for a server that will "point" to a possible server to which a bounce can be delivered.

Hello,

Doing either nslookup -q=mx domain.net or dig domain.net MX, they come up with:
mail.domain.net
winserv.domain.net

Should linserv.domain.net be added?

Thanks for your time and help,

Do not use the same email address for both the sender and recipient.

This is likely a spam test which were/are common in an attempt to take advantage of people who white listed their own email address as not being spam source.

See if the issue exists when you mail from user1@domain.net to user@domain.net

on the linux/postfix system try the following:

echo "To: <user@domain.net>
From: <user1@domain.net>
Subject: test

this is a test
" | /usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -fuser1@domain.net -t

tail /var/log/maillog to see what happened to this message.  Was it delivered to the exchange server.

Then see what happens on the exchange side with the message.

your nslookup -q=mx information for domain.net points to winserv (exchange server) which might be why it is rejecting.

I fixed the issue:

Now I am getting:

Please note there are 2 Exchange servers involved in this, winserv & winserv-1.  My goal with these is for winserv to be the "main" server and winserv-1 act as a replication/failsafe server.

Sending a message to user@domain.local is received.  I do have the domain-1.com account setup under the user account AND it is receiving messages from outside the LAN.

Thank you and have a great day,

Don

The issue seems to be within the exchange server i.e. postfix submits/delivers the messages which are rejected.

Look at the exchange logs to see what is going on with the message in question.

GEMCCAuthor Commented:
Issue resolved!  I had the syntax in /etc/postfix/virtual incorrect.  I had user@domain.com     smtp:[winserv.domain.local] instead of user@domain.local     user.  Once changed and ran postmap /etc/postfix/virtual and service postfix restart all is good!

Have a great weekend,
