I have a hard time believing you couldn't find one of the thousands of postfix howtos out there. Did you try anything at all? – EEAA Apr 26 '13 at 3:19

Answer is at the following URL


# Relay control (Postfix 2.10 and later): local clients and
# authenticated clients may specify any destination domain.
smtpd_relay_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,

Follow the links and you'll realise how easy it is to set it up yourself
