0gb.us is on a distinguished road
Mac Specs: iMac 400 MHz PowerPC G3 OS X 10.4.11

0gb.us is offline
For several months, on & off, I've been trying to send mail from my server.

Whenever I send mail from my server, it gets rejected from the receiving server. Or at least most servers reject it. Google accepts my mail, meaning my server is sending it out.

I think I've pinpointed the problem. My server is sending the wrong headers. They say the email is being sent from "0gb-us.local", but it should be coming from "0gb.us". I've tried editing my Postfix config file & restarting my server, but it always has no effect, or causes Postfix to quit working entirely.

I've tried following a few guides, but it didn't have any visible effect. Can someone please help me?

For reference, here's a list of the headers I got from sending something from my server to my Gmail inbox:

Can you post the bounce back message you are getting back? That will usually help pinpoint why the receiving server is rejecting the mail.

Oops, I got very busy, and didn't get back here to read your reply ... sorry. And thanks for trying.

As it turns out, every time I set my outgoing domain to 0gb.us, my mail server decided I was trying to RECEIVE mail at that domain as well. So, when I tried to send mail to myself, it got directed back at my own system, which didn't know what to do with it.

By adding a line to the config file, it cleared up:

Well, that was several months of frustration for just a simple problem.

For my own information, how do I see the bounce back message you were talking about?
