We had na old notebook runing Ubuntu 12.04 working as a web/ftp/mail server and it worked but since the notebook was a notebook and pretty old and unreliable, a desktop was bought to replace it before it stopped working all together.
Due to issues with the new desktop's vídeo card, we couldn't use Ubuntu 12.04 so we installed Ubuntu 13.10 and wen't about configuring it.
Since we removed the notebook from the network, we kept the same Computer Name and local IP address to make things as close to the old server as possible configuration-wise.
However, something has gone wrong since Postfix is throwing error 451 4.3.0 lookup faillure on every attempt to send a mail, and no email can be received either.
Our main.cf file is a copy of the one we were using (and working) on the old server (notice we use EHCP)

This configuration was working before but now everytime i try to send a mail in squirrelmail it reports:
Message not sent. Server replied: Requested action aborted: error in processing 451 4.3.0 <email@example.com>: Temporary lookup failure
And i can't send mail to it from outsider either. Any ideas?
EDIT: Here are some issues MXToolBox reports to my domain, answering hopefully to @Teun Vink:
BlackList Mail Server Web Server DNS Error 4 0 2 0 Warnings 0 0 0 3 Passed 0 6 3 12
So the domain is on some blacklist, but that doesn't explain the error at all No mail server issues found (except it's not working) Those two web server errors it's because i don't have HTTPS workin (No SSL Certificate) so the test fails Those 3 DNS warnings we're already there when it was working with the other machine and are related to stuff i can't control:
SOA Refresh Value is outside of the recommended range SOA Expire Value out of recommended range SOA NXDOMAIN Value too high
I've searched and as far as i can tell only the guys who sold the retail can change those values and they won't.
Edit2: I half solved the issue.on the new machine postfix was installed but postfix-mysql waasn't so he couldn't connect to the database (rookie mistake). After fixing that, i can now send mails to the outsider without any issues, however i am still not able to receive mails from utside. The sender doesn't get any message warning about the non-delivery but the message doesn't fall in the inbox and the log shows:
Nov 13 15:11:57 m21-traducoes postfix/smtpd: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from re lay4.ptmail.sapo.pt[126.96.36.199]: 451 4.3.5 <relay4.ptmail.sapo.pt[212.55.154. 24]>: Client host rejected: Server configuration error; from=<firstname.lastname@example.org> to=<email@example.com> proto=SMTP helo=<sapo.pt> Nov 13 15:11:57 m21-traducoes postfix/smtpd: disconnect from relay4.ptmail .sapo.pt[188.8.131.52]
Edit3: Removing the smtpd_relay_restrictions parameter from main.cf allows me to receive mail from outsider - but (i think) also makes me an open relay - which is a no-no. Ideas?
