DNS MX records (need seperate sub domain MX record to route mail differently)
Posted on 2007-07-27
I'm having trouble configuring my DNS MX records...
I'm using google aps for the primary mail and have all of their MX records added per their specification and that works fine.
However, I have mailman mailing lists on my server under this same domain, and I need mail sent to the lists to still go to the server and get processed by mailman.
What I did was create an additional A record for mx.domain.com that points to the server IP.
Then I created a new MX record for mx.domain.com that points to domain.com.
The other google MX records are all for domain.com and point to the google mail servers.
So, when I send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org I'm getting this error:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
(reason: 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts; no valid cert for gatewaying (#5.7.1))
----- Transcript of session follows -----
... while talking to domain.com.:
<<< 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts; no valid cert for gatewaying (#5.7.1)
550 5.1.1 <email@example.com>... User unknown
<<< 503 RCPT first (#5.5.1)
Am I going about this the right way or is there another way... I need some way to differentiate my list mail from normal mail and I was thinking an additional mx record that uses a subdomain that doesn't go to google would work... Maybe I was wrong... ???
I'm running on a FC 9 server with qmail and managing DNS via Plesk.
