Email Server postfix dovecot

Post by dover » 2014/10/22 02:33:39

Hi. I am currently setting up a mail server with CenOS 7, postfix & dovecot. I also have an internet domain registered which is hosting a website and current email (www.company.com.au)


The company that was hosting our emails is has now setup the MX to point to my ip address.

I have done a basic configuration of postfix and dovecot and installed webmin.

Mail Server is mail.company.com

i can telnet localhost 25 and connect ok.

Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.compacny.local ESMTP Postfix
ehlo localhost
250-mail.compacny.local
250-PIPELINING
250-SIZE 10240000
250-VRFY
250-ETRN
250-AUTH PLAIN LOGIN
250-ENHANCEDSTATUSCODES
250-8BITMIME
250 DSN


when i try and test, i get an error about configuration:

mail from :root
501 5.5.4 Syntax: MAIL FROM:<address>
mail from:root
250 2.1.0 Ok
rcpt to:company
451 4.3.5 Server configuration error


i am having a few issues but firstly, does my Email server have to have the same hostname as my Public domain? And secondly, why am I getting a server configuration error?

Help greatly appreciated
