a) You run the relay_host in a jail, don't have inet_interfaces hardcoded to the main IP, and postfix sees the jail IP on the local interface (that's the tricky one). or b) Your /usr/local/etc/postfix/transport is not as correct as you think -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
