It looks like your SMTP server does not want to talk to other machines:


Remote host said: 553 sorry, relaying denied from your location


Have a look in your /etc/postfix/main.cf configuration file to see if its listening to all interfaces.

Hi folks,



Tks for your advice.


Problem solved by editing DNS Control Center on Godaddy site making all items under "CNAMES (Aliases)" pointing to "satimis.com". Now postfix can receive mails.


My next step will be setup user mail boxes, security, etc. Please advise where can I find "documents for Ubuntu" to install/setup Postfixadmin, setup vmail user account and usergroup, setup files linking MySQL and postfix, etc.
