I've been struggling with this issue for the past few days and I can't get it working, I can't send mail externally but it is working internally. I've attached a copy of my mail log and /etc/postfix/main.cf. When I try to send to gmail, it says no route to host.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please check your DNS server and network gateway settings.

Thanks for the quick reply Zhang.

I've checked with my DNS and its currently pointing at my public IP shown in whatsmyip.com. Do I need to do port forwarding? If i do

host -t mx host.mydns.com

it shows the right mx record.

I solved the sending problem by putting my ISP's smtp to relayhost in main.cf but I still can't receive emails externally.  My ISP has a POP server for incoming mails.  Where do I set this in iredmail?
