  Im having problems sending mail from on my postifx server. 
  I've got a fully working pop-before-smtp installation and its finding the right IP address im connecting with. Ive included a copy of my Postfix main.cf file and a log extract of my connection proccess from start.
  Is there anymore help you can give me?
