Are Linux clients relaying using your SMTP box, or are they sending by themselves?

Eric, thanks for the suggestion, but that was not the solution...  I will be
reviewing the site you recommended to see if I can find a clue as to what
this could be...

More info:
It is not just Outlook that I'm having problems with, it's anything Windows...
I have tried Outlook, Outlook Express, and Eudora - all were able to receive
mail but unable to send it.

I have a qmail box that I am only serving virtual mailboxes from using
qmail+vpopmail.  My Linux-based users report no problems, all is fine.  My
Windows-based users can check their mail but cannot send it.  The log reports
nothing wrong.  The error reported by Outlook is the standard one about the
domain not being listed in rcpthosts...

This has really got me baffled because the behavior is not consistent.  I
can't understand how it could work for Linux clients but not Windows...  The
OS shouldn't really be a factor...
