So if I understand correctly, what you did below was this:
- Install/configure popbsmtpd on myvietnam, known as myvietnam.org.
- Pop your mail for account rhs from outside your network (from rr.com).
- Send mail through myvietnam from outside your network (rr.com again).
The mail you tried to send was rejected because relay access was denied.
I can't see anything wrong with your Postfix config, but the immediate
disabling of relaying by popbsmtpd is a problem. The duration for which
relaying is permitted is set in popbsmtpd.conf as follows:
auth_duration = 30
Make sure this is a positive number; recently someone tried a negative
number and got the result that you are getting. You can see what popbsmtpd
thinks it is using with
My output looks like this:
source_log = /var/log/pop-imap-login.log
auth_db = /etc/postfix/pop-before-smtp.db
If this does not point out the problem, you can stop the daemon and run it
from the command line with more verbose logging, and see if that shows up
I hope this helps; let me know how you succeed. If you can't get it going,
send me the logging output and the configuration file.
