We have our dsl through verizon with a static ip and we have been relaying our mail through outgoing.verizon.net. I tried to send 1662 emails which did not send and are currently waiting in mailman/qfiles/retry.

      Your postfix server is refusing to relay mail for this domain.
      This means the client is not in mynetworks, or did not AUTH, or the
      destination is not in relay_domains.

      It is not that to begin with; no external sources are involved.

      YOUR postfix server is refusing to relay mail to those destinations.

      I could not parse that.

      Definitely not, as the problem is not related to it.

      As mentioned when you joined this list, please provide the output of
      postconf -n, and the logs for at least one entire message, not just some
