    When sending mail to new server, "550 relay not permitted" is returned. Simple Fix?

    Hey, I've been working on this for some time now, but I'm not sure on how the settings were transfered over to this server. I wish I was there when it was done.

    Anyways, we got a new server and we transfered all the accounts to the new one. The old one is gone. When people send emails to their email accounts on the server, this is returned:

    Code:
    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
    
    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
    
        [email protected]
    
    Technical details of permanent failure:
    PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 550 relay not permitted

    I think you may either need POP or SMTP authentication, try authenticating then send.

    pop or smtp authentication for people sending mail to the server?

    like [email protected] (someone random) decides to mail us info at [email protected] (my test account).???

    Sending mail OUT from the server is fine.
    EDIT: I changed some things. Now I dont get the message returned. Now it seems like it sends, but NOTHING shows up in when I login to the webmail ([email protected]) to check it.

    If you're running postfix, check the mydestination config value, If not, shame on you

    Anyways, just make sure your new server knows it should be accepting mail for that domain.
    Perl
    Java
    SQL

    I found that my new Comcast Cable modem had firewall and some other services going on and that they were causing the problem. Once I had those services turned off, and the modem was just doing simple modem work, and not routing and not being a firewall, the email started flowing back to my email service within 10 minutes. I have my own firewall and the email server is behind this. The Comcast modem was blocking the flow of traffic.
    Hope This helps, as I had done all the other work with chaning my DNS, new ISP, etc. Good Luck.
