and look to the message print out , that could be.

1. the relay mail server not properly configure

Re: Problem in Mailing.

I found a similar problem...I had to specify a return address before the message was accepted for delivery. I also use mailx rather than mail. For example:

mailx -r recipient

You need to have postmaster be a real user or alias it in /etc/mail/aliases file.
