I configure a mail server using postfix and dovecot. Using this I can send and receive mail when it is local [ means, when mail is sending and receiving in myMailServer ]. Now problem is for others i.e gmail, yahoo etc. receiving from them is fine but sending is problem. I can understand why I can’t send mail to gmail or yahoo through myMailServer.

I’ll be grateful if any one help me. thank’s in advance.

here is my mail.log file data
