As you *explicitly* installed Postfix I thought you knew beforehand what you were doing and what you wanted to achieve.

I had to explicitly install most stuff because the hosting company who set up lenny for me only installed the absolute minimum to run ssh.

Postfix Standard Configuration Examples

Yes, I read this several times but obviously it's one of those situations where it doesn't make sense until you know what you're doing, and as my situation isn't one of the explicitly described common situations, I think I'm doing OK so far.

mydomain = ecocore.org

What is this domain for?

I want the email address from my machine to be root@ecocore.org (which is my domain name). I can live without this.

Finally I just de-installed postfix and purged it and re-installed everything without the mydomain=ecocore.org and now everything works.

Jan 19 17:47:52 ecocore postfix/smtp[31979]: AE2122A81F3: to=<adam.hardy@cyberspaceroad.com>, orig_to=<root@ecocore.vs.athnic.net>, relay=mx2.athnic.net[]:25, delay=0.23, delays=0/0.01/0.12/0.1, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as D3990328BCD)

So the reason why postfix was saying "ecocore.vs.athnic.net[]:25: Connection refused" will never be known, beyond my simple ignorance :O

Thanks for your help,
