      OK, something doesn't work as you expected, and you've tried
      something that didn't fix it. That's not much for us to go on.

      At a minimum we'll need to see your "postconf -n" output and the
      unmodified log lines showing the problem.

      Please see:

      Unsolicited advice that may or may not help: check_client_access
      uses the client hostname and IP as the lookup key. If you're trying
      to match an email address, you'll need to use check_sender_access or
      check_recipient_access. See the fine documentation for details.
