I'm trying to use a PHP form mail script
(http://www.leveltendesign.com/L10Apps/Fm/) to process data submitted
by a Web mail form.
The installation test completed successfully, and I moved the PHP file

the form again, but mailq showed the same 450 error.
I added the following to /etc/mail/freebsd.mc:
After a restart, mailq gave the same error.
Any thoughts on how to resolve this, or what I'm doing wrong?
