fairly new to setting up email servers and im
currently just playing about with ip addresses
for servers instead of actual domain names.

If i setup my smtp server i am able to send
emails out using my local ip address of my
server eg. but from within that
same location i cant use the external address
on the internet eg. I can also
send emails if im at another location and
point it to the external ip but i guess there
is some conflict when using the external ip
when behind that actual ip address.

Maybe i need to use a proxy server but i was
hoping there would be an easier way round it.

Hope you can advise.

If you need to send mails through your SMTP server to external recipients, you need to configure DNS (create MX and PTR records). External SMTP servers will reject your messages until you create MX and PTR records for your SMTP server.
