Subject:   Relaying Denied (reject=550)

I am having a problem with a small email server (less than 200
messages per day).  From several domains, I am getting the following
type of error message:

	reject=550 <>... Relaying denied

where username is the name of the person to receive the email

I believe that the problem is on my system, and possibly the fact
that my mail server is connected to the @home network via a cable
modem.  I have 3 domains sending and receiving email on this machine.
I have created a file that contains the names of the
domains hosted on this machine.  I do not believe that my host name
is not syncing up properly.

It also seems that the reply to address is not the same as the domain
that I am sending from.

I have included a snippet from a rejection message that I received

	> The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was
	> rejected by the
	> server. Server Response. '550 <>...
	> denied'.
	> Account: '', SMTP Server: ''
	> Error
	> Number: 0x800ccc79).

Other than that, all else seems to be working fine.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
