Hello Experts,

Have you configured your Exchange to permit relay your Postfix server? http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-2013-configure-smtp-relay-connector/

Hello,
I created the receive connector and specified the IP address of the postfix server but still getting the same error. The other thing I noticed is when I do telnet to my exchange server when I put  rcpt to: abc@gmail.com ,it fails (unable to relay) but when I put rcpt to: abc@ourowndomainuser, it says ok. Even it delivers mail to internal users.
Thanks.

Because your connector not permit relay.
You need to run this command on powershell:
Get-ReceiveConnector "Relay _connector_created" | Add-ADPermission -User 'NT AUTHORITY\Anonymous Logon' -ExtendedRights MS-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Recipient

Ensure your have only postfix ip address on your relay_connector_created, otherwise someone can use your mailserver as a source of spam.

In the above help link. Below is the paragraph

The final step involves granting anonymous users (such as the unauthenticated SMTP connections coming from applications and devices on your network) the ability to send to external recipients.

Do, i need to run the below script. Because it seems that anonymous is already checked through graphic screen.
Get-ReceiveConnector "Relay E15MB1" | Add-ADPermission -User 'NT AUTHORITY\Anonymous Logon' -ExtendedRights MS-Exch-SMTP-Accept-Any-Rec

Regards.

It worked, yes I must need to run that command through Exchange Management shell only.
Thanks for your help.
