Distribution list error

Post by Rxd » 2019-02-06 15:38

When I try to setup a distribution list to only allow email from 1 account I get the following error:

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded:
Not authorized owner..
Please check the message recipient "staff@***.com" and try again.

But the account I am using to send the email is the authorized account.

When I allow anyone in the distribution list to send the email it works.
But this isn't really what I want.

does that user have to AUTH to be able to send mail?
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

I just created a new user called announcements@***.com
The user can log into the email server fine as far as I can see.

Do I have to do something special to make this work?

What options do you have selected in the distribution list?
