I have run into some strange trouble with a fresh installation of netqmail-1.05 / vpopmail-5.2.2 (on Debian Sarge). I have run inst_check, which reassuringly reported "Congratulation, your installation looks good!". I configured vpopmail thus:
./configure --enable-roaming-users --enable --enable-logging=y --enable-file-sync

I have done this installation a few times and always got it working. Hower, this time around I cannot get rid of the error message:
"The mail server reported sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1).".
when I try to send mail to external mail addresse.

The only differens with this installatio is this I used netqmail (in the past I have applied the patches manually) and the latest version of vpopmail. Apart from that everything should be the same.

The mail server resides at a 172.16.0 net and the client machines at a net. If I have understood the documentation correctly, vpopmail must be configured with "--enable-roaming-users" if the client machines are on a different net. Correct?

The entry in  /home/vpopmail/etc/tcp.smtp is 172.16.0.:allow,RELAYCLIENT="" and I have done
qmailctl cdb
qmailctl stop
qmailctl start

In /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts I have got the entry

qmailctl stat shows that all four qmail processes are running normally.

By the way, vpopmail added the entry

I have not really fathomed why the hostname should be included here. What's it purpose? Anyway, I have tried booth:
(in the past I have used just mydomain.com)

I am able to send and receive mail locally, using Thunderbird via IMAP (Bincimap imap server). I can also send to external mail addresses using qmail-inject, booth as root and as vpopmail. However, when I try to send from Thunderbird I always get the error message:
"The mail server reported sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1).".
Same behaviour when using Opera.

Attempting to send to an external mail address results in the following entry in /var/log(qmail/log/smtp/current:
@4000000044b3aeb322da727c tcpserver: status: 1/20
@4000000044b3aeb322da89ec tcpserver: pid 9983 from
@4000000044b3aeb3244bd4fc tcpserver: ok 9983 mydomain.com: :
@4000000044b3aeb7137d671c tcpserver: end 9983 status 256
@4000000044b3aeb7137d7e8c tcpserver: status: 0/20

Also, I do not receive external mail.

I am probably overlooking something, but I cannot figure out what it could be. Any ideas about what to try next?
