Postfix -- Disable Local Delivery
Posted on 2008-10-14
We currently have a dedicated web server running Postfix 2.3.3. The only thing we need Postfix to do on this server is send emails for PHP. This webserver also hosts our website (ourdomain.com).
The problem is that we have our email accounts hosted with another company (not on this server that runs Postfix) so every time that PHP tries to send an email to an @ourdomain.com address, Postfix attempts to deliver it locally, which results in a failed delivery (because our email is hosted with another company).
Is there a way to have PostFix deliver @ourdomain.com email to the ip address listed on our domain's MX Record (which points to the company that hosts our email), instead of trying to deliver it locally?
Basically we need for Postfix to send all of its email out onto the Internet so that it may find its way to where it needs to go (the company that hosts our email accounts and wherever else).
Thank you in advance.
