Hi Folks,

I have installed thunderbird emailclient on my machine and james smptp mail server on the server. I have created an e-mail account for myself
in thunderbird. When I try sending a mail to myself, I am getting an error that says:
.... The mail server responded: 5.7.1 Requested action
not taken: relaying denied......

I checked the smtpserver log an it says: ERROR smtpserver:
Rejected message - 'my machine Ip address' not authorised to relay to

'server ip address'.

Both my machine and the server are within the same network.

I hope someone can advise me. Thanks.
I agree. Here's the link:
