Some more information would be helpful, such as error messages if any. Can you send mail to hotmail or msn normally? The problem could be anything really. The more info you can provide the better chance your question will get answered.

You may find that it is a product of where you are sending from. I know AOL and Roadrunner both block email from Comcast's public address block via the RBL, (real time black hole list), (I found that out for myself.... when I couldn't send to certain people). try going to the RBL and putting your IP address in and see if it is blocked.

Thanks tiger shark i am thinking the same thing it may have something to do with me running the server as a standalone Unit as well. The scripting is pretty standared what Redhat Fedora Supplies. Which do some more Searching.
