10 Thank you for you response.
12 1) About the "real" server: Well, "echo test | sendmail -t
13 root@localhost" works. I assume it should be enough, but I also tried
14 with "root@××××××××××.com" - no change.
15 2) Yes, it is postfix from the portage. Installed and configured as
16 described in the official documentation found at:

26 I see no errors. Neither while emerging, neither in the logs. No problem
27 with AUTH, because I use IP based policy for email relaying without
28 authentication.
30 Now. The things got even more weird and unexplainable for me. I did
31 "emerge -DuNav world" and there were some font packages to be rebuild
32 because of a change in the USE flags. After emerge finished I got emails
33 for the those packages but not a single message in the syslog. Another
34 thing I noticed is that packages emerged by "emerge -DuNav world" put
35 their logs in "/var/log/portage/elog/" while all other packages put
36 their logs in "/var/log/portage/".
38 Strange. I think I'm missing something simple but important. Any ideas?
