Apache is a good example to make me keep my point of view. :wink: Well, I don't know if apache is really such a good example. It took them years to come up with a stable version and there was no decend AND free webserver available for windows at the time, besides IIS, so "we" where actually waiting...

It's not a good way to say, we don't need linux because we don't want to use qmail and others... Don't think we need it, try to think we like hmailserver. And because we like it, we prefer to see it on our os (linux)...And not want to stay on windows only for this beautiful product witch is hmailse...

There are plenty of professional grade MTAs for every kind of unix already available, no need for another (especially not a closed source one) that doesn't bring anything new to the table. Anyone who considers qmail, exim, sendmail etc. to complex to configure, should probably think twice about usin...

Re: hMailServer 4.3, build 232

If you have configured hMailServer to listen on a specific set of IP addresses, only these will be considered local. This means that hMailServer can now deliver to other SMTP servers running on the same computer, if these listen on other IP addresses. Just did a quick test and everything works flaw...

There is still the problem that you can't have two mailservers on the same server when routes are involved between them, because hMailServer treats all ip addresses assigned to this system as "local". Even the ones that are not used by hMailServer. Martin, you said in another thread , that you may c...

Removing the IP wouldn't make any changes. hMailServer does not use this information when it decided whether an IP address is local. I think I'll change that behaviour for 4.3 though. If any IP addresses is specified in the multi homing settings, hMailSever considers these addresess to be the local...

There are alternative ways of syncing emails - such as IMAPCopy. You could probably make hMail think it's sending to a non-local mail server by sending the route to a router/gateway which in turn forwards back to the other IP on the hMail host rig. I thought about something like that as well, but c...

Maybe there is another way to persuade hMailServer to talk to the other mailer without buying new hardware? You could set up a Virtual Server/Machine ... would only cost you some ram and perhaps a NIC: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/virtualserver/default.mspx hi Gustav, good idea but ...

> I wonder why nobody else had that problem before. Probably because it's pretty rare to route email between different SMTP servers on the same computer. My plan was to implement some kind of "stealth migration", with the old server still running while i silently change the mx-entries to our shiny ...

I think that if you've specified a list of IP addresses in the multi homing settings, hMailServer could consider this to be the only local IP addresses and treat the others as non-local. hi martin, that sounds like a reasonable solution. I wonder why nobody else had that problem before. Anyway, if ...

Problem with routes on server with multiple IPs

hi, maybe someone can help me solve this problem: i tried to setup a route for a single mx-domain from hMailServer to our "legacy" mailserver which runs on the same machine but with a different public ip. the dns stuff looks ok, and if i create a domain+useraccount in hMailServer everything works fi...
