Ohhh, Okay. I completely understand. Sorry for such confusion. I actually used QmailRocks.org, the installation guide. Would you be able to tell me how to let a certain IP address range relay?

If you want to enable roaming users (people on dial-up, people who have dhcp - ie, people who aren't on your LAN) you'll have to consult your distribution or whoever put your setup together (the toaster author?). That's more of a qmail function than a vpopmail function, as the relay options are compiled into the qmail programs. I use Matt Simerson's toaster, maybe you followed Life with Qmail? If you just want your whole LAN to relay, put this in your tcp.smtp file before recompiling it: 192.168:allow,RELAYCLIENT="" That will allow anyone with a 192.168.x.x address to relay through your mail server. Use whatever IP Address scheme is setup on your network. Though you really should double check with your setup docs for file locations and relay options and the like...
