Re: getting spam and undeliverables from local users

...senders are considered external if they do not match an account set up in hMailServer. Adding a domain but no accounts won't have any effect on that. Ah, ok. I was thinking that by having a local domain, that would cause any addresses from that domain to be considered local. The behavior is real...

Re: getting spam and undeliverables from local users

Looks like we'll have to wait for 5.2. After adding the domain with no mailboxes, the secondary server is still accepting messages from the internet that pretend to be from "local" users. Local now means matching the domain "mydomain.com" and the route for "mydomain.com", both of which are configure...

Alright, I'm ready to test this. Have just created the domain "mydomain.com" on the secondary server (same domain as in the route) with no mailboxes. Will monitor and post back to let you know how this works.

I'm leaning towards changing the implementation in 5.2 so that a sender is considered local if: ... - the domain-part of his email address matches a route which is configured to be treated as local. ...
