    You must create an A record for server1.webpapagedirect.co.za.

    Does this also have to be done at my registrar

    A
    Code:
    dig webpapagedirect.co.za
    shows that ns0.coza.net.za is the authoritative nameserver for your domain. That's where you must create the DNS records.

    ******************************************************
    And for domain zululand-adventures.com I cant log into the pop3.zululand-adventures.com with the users username and password, but can log into pop3.webpagedirect.co.za with username and password from zululand-adventures.com

    Put ehs.org.za at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names (where it says that you can make changes there) and restart Postfix.

    Can you explain this in more detail?

    no error message

    Now I'mstill not receiving on ehs.org.za and when sending from external no longer getting an error message. nothing comes back

    on the domain zululand-adventures.com keeps asking for username and password, but when I change my incoming server from pop3.zululand-adventures.com to pop3.webpagedirect.co.za and keep username for zululand adventures domain I can log into the server ,but don't receive any mail.

    Which POP3 server do you use? Please post the output of
    Code:
    netstat -tap
    Is Maildir enabled or disabled under Management -> Server -> Settings -> Email (I guess you have installed ISPConfig)?

    That's strange because all 3 FQDNs (zululand-adventures.com, pop3.zululand-adventures.com and pop3.webpagedirect.co.za) point to the same IP address. Do you see anything in the mail log about this?

    What does your mydestination line look like in /etc/postfix/main.cf? It should be
    Code:
    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    You're using Courier as POP3 server which means you must enable Maildir in ISPConfig (if you use ISPConfig).

    Grizzly New Member

    no change still same errors

    mydestination line is as you said it should be

    when sending fro domain not hosted on the server I get a message stating mail loops back to myself for ehs.org.za domain

    Am I correct in assuming that for each domain I set up the server automatically creates pop3.domain.lll and smtp.domain.lll or do you still have to create these in the co-domains area

    Yes I am using ISP config and maildir is ticked on

    Thanks for having the patience to help me through this

    Sorry was a bit hasty when sending from domain not hosted on my server *@ehs.org.za I get the following

    <info@ehs.org.za>:
    196.33.247.203 does not like recipient.
    Remote host said: 550 <info@ehs.org.za>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
    Giving up on 196.33.247.203.

    but when I look in my virtusertable the address wasn't there so I added it and tried again still same error.
     
  15. falko

    falko Super Moderator

    No, you have to create these subdomains on the Co-Domains tab (and of course, you must create DNS records for these subdomains).

    Did you create the email address info@ehs.org.za in ISPConfig?

    If you want to add the email address manually instead of with ISPConfig, then you must run
    Code:
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    after you've added the email address to /etc/postfix/virtusertable and then restart Postfix.

    Grizzly New Member

    Think I've got it

    Okay

    1: Deleted all users all in all domains within ISPConfig
    2: vi /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    3: Removed all the Junk that I obviously added with all trying
    4: did the same with /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    5: Recreated Domains
    6: Recreated Users
    7: Looked at files "/etc/postfix/virtusertable" & "/""/local-host- names"
    They looked more like the ones posted online.

    Tried sending to external: Success

    Tried sending from external domain to local domains:

    All now give same error:

    This is the Postfix program at host server1.webpapagedirect.co.za.

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

    For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.

    The Postfix program

    **********************************************************
    This comes back to what you pointed out.

    But I'm sorry to say there that I'm lost with their application form.Would it be possible to have a look?(http://co.za/coza_reg.txt) cause their not answering e-mail and not returning calls.

    Will try phone tomorrow, but tomorrow public holiday.

    Have you created an A-Record server1.webpapagedirect.co.za in the DNS-Server for webpapagedirect.co.za?

    Otherwise you can try to add it to the hosts file on your server.

    where would the "hosts" file be?


    I registerred webpapagedirect.co.za at zoneedit so not to sure why I have to tel coza that they have to add server1.webpapagedirect.co.za to the DNS and I cant get throught to them. Their form is confusing and they're not the most helpfull.
