By Pass local mailboxes

Postby portech » Thu Dec 19th, 2013 11:23am

Mailtraq Version: 2.17.5.3364 Win 2012 Server

Hi
Can anyone advise me on how to by pass local mailboxes i.e. i want all emails to go to the external smtp server and ignore local mailboxes if a match is found.

Thanks

There are two ways to do this:

  1. You can check Place in the Outbox in Options | Incoming Mail | Undelivered Mail.

    This will result in any message that doesn't match a local mailbox going to the outbox rather than being rejected.

  2. You can check the domain as a Passthrough Domain in Options | Incoming Mail | Archive Passthrough.

    This means that mail must match a local mailbox but is copied to the outbox anyway and the local system acts as a sort of archive of all mail.

In both cases you need a custom route for the domain otherwise you may end up with the mail being delivered back to the current machine in a loop.

Thanks Elric
So just to be sure all internally sent email would be routed externally even if there was a local mailbox in mailtraq?
And yes it would be picked up by mailtraq during it's POP3 collection and then placed into the correct mailbox.

Only the second option I described would result in externally routed mail even if there is a matching local mailbox.
