Postfix setup issues

Hello,

 

I'm trying to set up a postfix server at home.

 

For relay I am using the following settings:

 

relayhost = smtp.broadband.rogers.com:587
smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/relay_passwd
smtp_sasl_security_options =

 

 

my relay_password:

smtp.broadband.rogers.com <username>@rogers.com:<password>

 

 

When I attempt to send an email I get the following error in my log:

 

Feb  2 11:51:42 localhost postfix/smtp[17490]: 1D88012452: to=<...@rogers.com>, relay=smtp.broadband.rogers.com[67.195.22.104]:587, delay=0.35, delays=0/0/0.28/0.07, dsn=5.7.1, status=bounced (host smtp.broadband.rogers.com[67.195.22.104] said: 530 5.7.1 Authentication required (in reply to MAIL FROM command))

 

What am I doing wrong?

Not overly familiar with postfix.. so cant help specifically with its exact settings.

 

The SSL port for the SMTP, i beleive should be 465

(post fix would have to support sending via SSL)

 

You have the right host.

 

Not sure how the postfix sends the user authentication.

 

user name should be  your email

password your webmail yahoo password

@virzak,

Are you sending from your Rogers email address or using you own domain?

I'm using my own domain.

Any update on this issue ?

I would like to send email from my own domain through yahoo/rogers with yahoo/rogers account with postfix.

So far, no luck
