Topic: force mail to goto public internet or other workaround?
Morning all. I originally setup this server for a 'real' mail server for a few subdomains and things are working great. Now our older server that get's used for just outbound mail has died, and I want to use this box for that purpose as well. Basically when there are errors on the websites, the server (running cold fusion) will generate a message and go out as well as other website functions (lost password, etc.).
The problem is 1st the server names were not there so I was getting "Mailbox does not exist" errors, so to test, I added one or two and things worked. The users got their requested password, thanks for registering, etc at any of their email domains (@gmail.com, etc.)
The issue now is that the error messages goto the admins at our domain (ex. email@example.com) but the problem is that I added the @domain.com to iRedAdmin as a domain so that step 1 would be resolved and that the server could send to the users. Our real mail is hosted at google enterprise, but when the server say's send this error to firstname.lastname@example.org, the server says (in plain terms), "oh, I have that domain here, so I will just deliver". I see the postfix error email@example.com does not exist.
What i want is for ALL mail to go out to the public, so when a message from a local webserver goes to the iRedMail server and says this is for firstname.lastname@example.org, it doens't look local but rather sends it out so it can be properly delivered to google, OR the better of the 2 options would be to just allow mail to be relayed from a specific IP. I tried adding the IP to the mynetworks line in the main.cf, but when I submit I get "Sender address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table".
I would prefer to be able to send mail to that mail server from anyone (from a specific IP) without that mailbox does not exist. So what's the best route to address this?
