    Hey Hoping someone can shed some light on this.

    When sending an automated email from a vbulletin forum, i end up with the following error in my mail.log.

    Code:
    Jan 30 19:14:10 server1 postfix/pickup[28403]: E38709F8552: uid=33 from=<www-data>

    I'm running Debian Etch and the latest ISPconfig version 2.
    
    Followed the server perfect server install as well.
    
    Any ideas?

    Do you run your server on a dsl line or in a datacenter with a fixed IP?

    Is the Ip 83.149.117.94 on your server or is this an external server?

    No that's an external ip address where the email was sent to.

    You're relaying through that server, right? Are you sure the relay is working?

    Did you receive a sender non-delivery notification? If so, what's in it?

    I'm not relaying I don't think. That's the ip address of anotehr server I own which is where the email account that should have got that email is based. Completely seperate from the ispconfig server.

    I have nothing in the inbox for the domain of the vbulletin although i do have a catchall email set up.

    Just as an extra thought, I can send an email through roundcube to the same email that is bouncing the vbulletin email if that helps?

    Then take a look at the mail log of your other server to see why it refuses the email.

    Till: This is the errors on the other server in the exim_reject.log:

    2009-01-31 17:50:29 H=(server1.komodoarcade.com) [212.117.165.30] sender verify fail for <www-data@server1.komodoarcade.com>: The mail server could not deliver mail to www-data@server1.komodoarcade.com. The account or domain may not exist, they may be blacklisted, or missing the proper dns entries.

    Configure vbulletin to use an existing emial address as sender address for its notifications or disable sender address validation in your other server.

    This seems to have solved the problem for vbulletin. I selected an option in the forum admin section under email for this purpose.
