Do you mean you can't mail to the outside world, or you simply can't
send any mail through it, even to an internal address?

We can only guess without seeing configuration files. You also need to
say what type of authentications are being used (simply passwords,
encrypted logons, certificates as well, etc.).
Are you playing with authorisation, because you have to (it's publicly
exposed), or because you want to (for experimenting purpose)?
If you don't really need it (e.g. because you have a mail server inside
your LAN that can't be externally accessed) then you can avoid trying to
get it working.
[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r
Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I
read messages from the public lists.
