Can't receive email >> internal account to internal account

Post by nessundorma » 2012-07-19 13:43

Hello,
I've configured HMailserver with 10 domains (and 1 email for every account). I can send and receive correctly but if I send a message to internal accounts, the messages can only be received from the computers that are in our lan. I can't receive messages sent by internal accounts to internal accounts if I'm connected from a different connection or even if I check the messages by web mail.

Thank you for your help.

mail sent internally is delivered locally and does not leave the mailserver but should be just as accessible as if it had been received from an outside connection. Check hmails queue under status and click refresh, are there any emails waiting? Have you added anything to hmails smtp relayer setting?

Thank you for your quickly replay DooM.
No, the queue list is empty.
On smtp relayer:
- Localhost name: nedo.it (the main domain)
- Smtp relayer: smtp.nedo.it + port 25 + requires autentication + user and password

Thank you again for your help.

Right so hMail is relaying all email to a different server or is nedo.it hosted on your hmail install?

I just want Hmailserver send emails by the smtp server of my dsl provider. I can also use the smtp server of my domains to send emails.

Nedo.it and all others domains and accounts are hosted by an external provider.
I want to use Hmailserver to manage all ingoing and outgoing msg and distribuite it to all the computers in the LAN.

Right well that's the issue. You are connecting locally for the email but hmail is sending it to the external mailserver so it will never be local and won't be there when you check it.

Sorry DooM but probably I didn't understand...

Do you mean that if I send an email to an account that is also configured in Hmailserver the message can be received only by the computers that are connected to the lan and can not be read by ad external connection or by the web mail interface?

No, is managed by my service provider.
Nedo.it is one af the domain/account I've configured on hMailServer.

Right so hmail delivers email locally to the local domain and your webmail connects to your external server. So that is why you cannot see the emails.
