I have been trying to setup a mail server in ubuntu using this tutorial: http://flurdy.com/docs/postfix/index.html
I have completed the basic configurations (I havent reached the extend part yet)
So, I have used telnet and the following works:
send email to gmail
send mail to itself
forward the mail it receives (I have forwarded the mail I receive to an external account for testing purposes, so the above step forwards the email to another gmail account)
So my problem is I cannot send mail from gmail, I get '530 530 5.7.1 Invalid Address'.
All of what I have tried is:
I have tried pinging my mail server from another pc on the same network, cant find the server.
I disabled the router's firewall, forwarded the port and set up my mail server as an exposed host.
Disabled shorewall on my mail server.
Changed the shorewall policies to allow everything in.
At each of the above steps I tried sending an email from gmail to my mail server and I still get the same error.
I am really not sure what is happening, and am clueless of what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
