- Mar 22, 2013Hello again
Would it be bi-directionnal ? I mean does incoming email are routed to
the internal qmail server , I need this because qmail deliver emails to few
users on this machine in a special way .

Hello I'm in trouble with an old Qmail server that runs on an also old server. The problem is I cannot modify the existing configuration of this machine because of inhouse developped applications that use qmail. Qmail ( which i know very few ) seem a bit autistic when talking to non FQDN distants servers or with MX misconfigured. my idea is to add a postfix instance on this machine which will send emails to the Internet. In my plan Qmail will inject all outgoing SMTP traffic into Postfix instance that will send it outside .
That doesn't sound too hard. Configure postfix to listen on some localhost port -- I'll use 2525 for this example -- and configure qmail to use that as a smarthost. In postfix master.cf, find the line that resembles smtp inet n - n - - smtpd and change it to 127.0.0.1:2525 inet n - n - - smtpd Then configure qmail to use that port as a smarthost. I don't use qmail, but google suggests the way to do that is echo ":127.0.0.1:2525" > /var/qmail/control/smtproutes but you might want to check your qmail docs for details. -- Noel Jones
