Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm currently having some troubles, i have recently setup a server with FreeBSD and Virtualmin/Webmin.

I have somehow changed something yesterday, while trying to get the SMTP to work. But now the server will not receive any mail.

Dovecot is still working, clients can log in and check mail.

Example from /var/log/maillog (i know the example probably is spam, but any how)

Nov 11 20:01:51 caesar postfix/smtpd[75689]: connect from unknown[]
Nov 11 20:01:51 caesar postfix/smtpd[75689]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from unknown
  []: 554 5.7.1 <info@divecenter-bornholm.com>: Relay access denied; 
  from=<quwefub4444@33.mn> to=<info@divecenter-bornholm.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<[]>
Nov 11 20:01:51 caesar postfix/smtpd[75689]: disconnect from unknown[]

I have used whole day today to get it to work, but i think i'm over my head with this one.

My primary hope is to get it to receive mail again, and if in the process the SMTP can get working at the same time its a big bonus.

I hope someone out there can help me. I can supply all the info required.
