    Qmail problems

    Hi Guys...

    Im having a problem with QMail for local domains. When I try to send an email from a domain on my server to another domain on the same server (but email hosted at rackspace) the email doesn't get delivered and I do not get any errors or bouceback messages. The email just seems to disappear into thin air.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    Ahhh ha!! I just found out this information:

    Code:
    Qmail will not consult the MX records if the domain considered "local" on the server. All of the local domains are listed in the file /var/qmail/control/locals. Plesk is probably setting this, so you'll have to figure out how to tell Plesk that email should not be hosted for that domain name.
    So I guess my question now is "How do I tell Plesk to lookup MX records for all domains even if they are local"?

    Domains hosted on the same server should be defined in /var/qmail/control/me or the server will reject those emails because it will think that you're trying to relay though it.
