Topic: can't send mail to other users or domains on the same host

Hi all,

I've set up a new install of 0.7.0 and can't send to other users on the same or different domain hosted on the same server.

My mail server is a virtual machine, hosting several domains and multiple users on each domain.  I'm sending emails from my desktop through my local ISP, and am getting errors from the outbound mail server (bigpond.com), for example trying to send an email to myself:

This Message was undeliverable due to the following reason:

Each of the following recipients was rejected by a remote mail server.
The reasons given by the server are included to help you determine why each recipient was rejected.

    Recipient: <scott@domain.org>
    Reason:    5.7.1 <scott@domain.org>: Sender address rejected: not logged in


Please reply to <Postmaster@mx.bigpond.com> if you feel this message to be in error.

Domain.org is obviously not the real name.  I seem to be able to send and receive emails to/from domains outside my server.

I've tried adding my IP address into the file /etc/postfix/main.cf in the line:
  mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8, xx.xx.xx.xx

Same result with or without:

Reporting-MTA: dns; nschwmtas06p.mx.bigpond.com
Arrival-Date: Fri, 22 Apr 2011 02:17:03 +0000
Received-From-MTA: dns; nschwotgx03p.mx.bigpond.com (60.xx.xx.212)

Final-Recipient: RFC822; <scott@domain.org>
Action: failed
Status: 5.1.3
Remote-MTA: dns; mail.domain.org (74.xx.xx.190)
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 553 5.7.1 <scott@domain.org>: Sender address rejected: not logged in

Does anyone know what might be going on?  I don't recall encountering setup issues like this when I set up 0.5.1 back then.

Thanks.

It's clear here. You must enable smtp auth to send email.

I finally get it, now having learnt more about reading the log files - thanks very much!
