    Greetings to all,

    i have installed centos 5 and the latest ispconfig 2.2.23

    I am using my machine to send emails from various different applications. When the email goes out to aol, the email is bounced back. I have setup a reverse dns record for my domains and added the "abuse" email accounts.

    The problem i think is that on the undelivered report that i get i see "This is the mail system at host myserver.privatedns.com." I think instead of saying "at host mydomain.com" it uses the localhost name thus getting bounced back.

    What do i have to do to send properly this message ? If i login to the local smtp from my application and then send the emails will this fix the problem ?

    If i just change myhostname parameter to a "proper" domain would this be considered as spoofing ?

    Thank you very much

    Your answers are appreciated.

    Best Regards,

    Leon

    Please change myorigin to your desired hostname in /etc/postfix/main.cf.
    Also, do you have SPF records for your domains?
    Please check if your server is blacklisted: http://mxtoolbox.com/blacklists.aspx

    That's no problem, but make sure you have an SPF record for domain2.
