I have set up a postfix server, it is sending mail but not receiving mail from yahoo, gmail etc. I tested telnet 25 from outside and the port 25 is open. I got Relay Access denied error in the maillog. What setting should i put to make this work?

Take a look at this howto: howtoforge.com/postfix_relaying_through_another_mailserver. Someone in the comments had the same relaying denied error. –  slm Dec 29 '12 at 14:48
