Roundcube - no bounce messages

    Hi all,

    today I discovered a weird behaviour of RoundCube webmail: When I send messages to a non-existing email address, there are no bounce-messages sent back to the sender. Funny enough: When I connect with Thunderbird via IMAP, everything works fine.

    What I found in the is the following:

    What strikes me is that RoundCube sends the message with [email protected] in the from-field, which is also found in the return-path-field of a correctly sent message. The "real" sender address is only found in the x-sender-field.

    What on earth is that? Is it because I have configured RoundCube to use PHP mail() to sent messages? But there still should be a decent sender information?!

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I don't have a full explanation for that, but you can decide NOT to use php to send your mails. If you want to send your mails with the current username/password and smtp-server, make sure you've the following lines within your config/ file:

    $rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '/etc/postfix/virtusertable';
    $rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'host.domain.tld';
    $rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '%u';
    $rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = '%p';

    Where 'host.domain.tld'; is the output of the command: hostname -f

    Thanks loads, Hans!

    I tried this already, yet, I configured a different name for the smtp_server. The important hint was to use the "hostname -f" server name.

    However, I still wonder, why the php mail() type of configuration does not work decently. Maybe one day I will find out... ;-) For now, I am happy with the way it works.
