Hostnames have been changed to protect the innocent (although that's 
not needed in this case).  protected.fake.fake.xxx is a machine I've 
set up myself that has a default potato debian install, with postfix 
(default as well).

urh1000|someuser> telnet protected.fake.fake.xxx 25
Connected to protected.fake.fake.xxx (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX).
Escape character is '^]'.
220 protected.fake.fake.xxx ESMTP Postfix
HELO urh1000.uiuc.edu
250 protected.fake.fake.xxx
MAIL FROM:<nobody@urh1000.uiuc.edu>
250 Ok
RCPT TO:<someuser@urh1000.uiuc.edu>
554 <someuser@urh1000.uiuc.edu>: Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied
