    I can't get my spamsnake to receive mail. The error that appears is Relay access denied;. I look on the internet for a solution but i can't find it. So can some help around?

    postconf -n
    alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
    append_dot_mydomain = no
    biff = no
    config_directory = /etc/postfix
    header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
    inet_interfaces = all
    inet_protocols = all
    local_recipient_maps =
    local_transport = error:No local mail delivery
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    message_size_limit = 10485760
    mydestination =
    mydomain =
    myhostname =
    mynetworks =,
    myorigin =
    readme_directory = no
    recipient_delimiter = +
    relay_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/relay_domains
    relay_recipient_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/relay_recipients
    relayhost =
    smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache
    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name SpamSnake
    smtpd_data_restrictions = reject_unauth_pipelining
    smtpd_helo_required = yes
    smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
    smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key

    What MTA are you relaying to? If it's an exchange box, you have to allow the snake to relay to it or you'll get the relay access denied.

    Whats in your transports file?

    actually I want to have the spamsnake to forward the mails to an other emailadres. That where its going wrong i think.

    Could you make a little guide on how to do that. Do have to install an other mta or should use an other postfix config?
