Okay, you need to configure SASL properly - your main.cf on the
sending machine has "smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes", and your receiving
machine does apparently require it.

Not sure what you mean here. Are you saying the test mail was not
delivered to the receiving machine because it requries sasl to receive
in its end?
Hmm, I didn't get that quite right.
You have "smtp_sasl_auth_enable" set to yes, which means the sending
machine will try to use SASL - however, as you have not configured
SASL, it can't even start.
Try commenting out "smtp_sasl_auth_enable".


OK, that did the trick. All the messages that were in the que were delivered to the receiving machine.

On the sending machine I do have smtp_sasl-auth-enable = yes, but I
also have smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks,
permit_sasl_authenticated, reject-unauth_destination
The former (smtp_ ) is for outgoing connections, the latter (smtpd_) for
incoming.



I never understood that distinction before. Thanks!

Now that I have basic email working, I need to get SSL/TLS working, and then set this machine to handle my FQDN mail. I'll start this topic on a fresh thread.

Many thanks,

Jim F
