Hi,

We have setup postfix, dovecot on our new server and have no issues sending or receiving e-mails from the server directly. However, when we try to send mails out
from outlook/thunderbird, it fails with the following error message(s):

## postfix/smtpd[6786]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from abc.domain.net[<ip_address>]: 454 4.7.1 <testedr@gmail.com>: Relay access denied; from=<tony@abc360.com> to=<testedr@gmail.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<mydel>

I have added domain.net to mynetworks, but still I get the same error.

You need to  add the relay restriction as below.


# With Postfix 2.10 and later, the mail relay policy is
# preferably specified under smtpd_relay_restrictions.
/etc/postfix/main.cf:
    smtpd_relay_restrictions =
    permit_mynetworks
    permit_sasl_authenticated
    reject_unauth_destination

# Older configurations combine relay control and spam control under
# smtpd_recipient_restrictions. To use this example with Postfix ≥
# 2.10 specify "smtpd_relay_restrictions=".
/etc/postfix/main.cf:
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
    permit_mynetworks
    permit_sasl_authenticated
    reject_unauth_destination
        ...other rules...


Also check in configuration file main.cf if following line was commented, if yes remove the comment.

smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_sasl_authenticated
