 remote SMTP relaying

I am having a "relay denied" problem when trying to send outgoing mail through sendmail.

I can connect to and collect mail from my POP account fine from Outlook, however when trying to send mail through the other way out to I get the "relay denied" error.

I have tried adding the domain to the access.db file, this didnt work. If i add the follwing line to the access.db file: RELAY

i still get the relay denied error

if i add this line: "no way"

i see this message in the error (indicating that my updates to the access.db file are actually working)

i have also tried OK

again I get the "relay denied" error.

Can you suggest how I can get this outgoing mail to work??

Thanks for any help in advance

Kind Regards

this will only work if your IP address resolves to

Try adding your internal subnet to the list and see if it solves the issue.

eg: if your intenal subnet is, then

192.168.0 OK


192.168.0 RELAY
