Hello, and first of all sorry for not writing this post in Russian - I don't have access to a Russian keyboard right now. You can reply in Russian though (I should be able to understand the answer, although it will take some time !)

Here is my problem. My ISP for some stupid reason doesn't accept to SEND mails that come with a reply address of "" (or any other large free mail service for that matters).

So i have decided to install my own SMTP server to send mail from my own box. I chose qmail as an MTA agent. Actually I don't have much experience with MTAs (I am new to qmail and dont even know sendmail), but I just did emerge qmail, read some docs, and qmail was up and running as a SMTP server for my local box.

So far so good... I am able to send mails where I want... EXCEPT to addresses at (this time the problem being that I can send those mails, but the recipients never receive them, and no error messages are sent to my reply adress...)

Do you know what is going wrong? My guess would be that maybe doesn't accept by default mails coming from an unknown (and untrusted) SMTP server (mine in this case). How can I see if this is the case, is that something I could find on the qmail logs?

And how can I fix that, can I register my SMTP as a trusted one, or can I relay the mails it send through another one?

If you know anything about that thing, please help, thanks!

Да блин, чёто мейл.ру себя вообще по-свински ведут.
Тут промелькнула мысль посмотреть почтовый адрес админа на whois сервисе, где, в свою очередь, написано что к нему можно обращаться по поводу "security problems". Так что попробуй намылить администратору на abuse@..., он как минимум прояснит обстановку с trusted/unstrusted серверами.
