Qmail not sending
Posted on 2006-05-30
I lease a dedicated root server at 1and1.com (fedora 2).
The server has PLESK 7.5.4 preinstalled.
The email server application is Qmail.
I have it configued for authenticed smtp.
The pop3 works OK and receives mail.
However the server (MTA) will not send
any mail from any mail account or via any system service
The log information in brief is reporting:
delivery 577: failure: Sorry._Although_I'm_listed_as_a_best-preference_MX_or_A_for_that_host,/it_isn't_in_my_control/locals_file,_so_I_don't_treat_it_as_local._(#5.4.6)/
The email messages are contained within the "Mail Queue", but are not being sent.
Presumable due to the error message above.
Tried to send through a php application by changing php.ini.
I have changed a suggested php.ini setting from:
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i/
To: sendmail_path = /var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject
And restarted the server.
All DNS entries appear correct.
Working on this for six days with customers waiting to be moved
to this server promised weeks ago. Any and all help would be most
