Postmaster Email Problem
Hello People

I have a minor problem with my emails in ISPConfig something I cant get my head around, I have 2 domains in ISPConfig, Domain1 has postmaster@domain1.tld address and abuse alias works fine even passes the DNS Test,

It is the Domain2 where I am having problems configured exactly same as domain1, I have a postmaster@domain2.tld and alias abuse configured now I can send and recv email no problem but when i do DNS test on the domain it tells me domain2.tld cannot recv email for postmaster and abuse.

Any help with on this will be really appreciated.

Is the email address postmaster@domain2.tld listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable? Are you really sure that the MX record for points to this server?

Hi Till

thank you very much for your reply I am 100% sure the email address for postmaster@domain2.tld is listed in /etc/postfix/virtusertable & I am 100% sure it is pointing to the right mail server.

Please run

dig mx domain2.tld
and make sure that it points to the right server.

First of all thank you for your interest & reply, I did that and it is pointing to the right mail server.

But saying that if I add a new domain into ISPConfig I have exactly same problem with newly added domain.

I have realized I cannot send email to postmaster@domain2.tld it bounces back. For help I am sending you the link which might give a clearer picture.

Hi Leon
Thanks for taking interest.

I am more than happy to do that, it was nothing to do with ISPConfig or any other configuration related to postfix, the culprit was ASSP it was blocking (postmaster & abuse)emails to that particular domain, Hence in ASSP you need to list the domain in the local doamins file & you have to do that everytime you add a new domain to CP.

Hope that helps :)
