554 5.0.0 MX list points back to server
554 5.3.5 ... Local configuration error
The following paragraphs are using a Sun Cobalt RAQ 4, using the web management UI.
Prior to this, sending an email to clientsdomain.tld woudl produce an error such as:
The original message was received at Mon, 16 Sep 2002 11:32:11 +0100 from adsl.host.co.uk [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
Without a Virtual Site
I have a client that wanted an email only solution. Anotherwords, the domain name could point anywhere, but they wanted the email to be forwarded to an external email address.
If I added the domain to the Email server Aisases of the Site Management screen then the email would (probably) work but the catch all would go to the admin on that sub-domain.
Control Panel > Email server > Host/Domain Aliases > added the hostname.clientsdomain.tld. and clientsdomain.tld.
This time a test to email@example.com and a test to firstname.lastname@example.org rejected by the server 550 5.1.1 User Unknown.
Putty into the server, I became root.
... and email now works perfectly.
