I am having problems connecting to my college's smtp server
(students.uiuc.edu) with postfix. The smtp server says "not an open
relay". I can, however, use spruce (gtk+ email client) to connect to the
In the mail headers, the postfix mail has this line:
Received: from carrera.localdomain (firstname.lastname@example.org
by relay1.cso.uiuc.edu (8.10.1/8.10.1) with ESMTP id e7LD6eb11661
for <email@example.com>; Mon, 21 Aug 2000 08:06:41 -0500 (CDT)
The same line in the spruce mail looks like this:
Received: from carrera (pbd1309.urh.uiuc.edu [184.108.40.206])
by ux8.cso.uiuc.edu (8.10.1/8.10.1) with SMTP id e7LDHck16446
for firstname.lastname@example.org; Mon, 21 Aug 2000 08:17:39 -0500 (CDT)
The postfix uses email@example.com while the spruce does not.
Is this the problem? How do I fix it, or what is the real problem?
I use dhcp and don't have a static IP nor can I get a domain name.
