Hi guys, im using a postfix mail server. I have just set up PMG and it can receive incoming email very well. But now i want PMG to forward my outgoing email from Postfix too. In /etc/postfix/, i set relayhost = <PMG ip>:587, in PMG > Mail Proxy > Transports > i added mail domain, postfix servers ip, protocol smtp, and port 587.
But i've checked the postfix log and it say "connect to <PMG ip>[<PMG ip>]:587: Connection refused".
So what should i do to make it works?
Thanks for reading my theard
