I am so close to going live with my VP site (and dropping my current service provider, though well-intentioned, cannot keep their SMTP server off of various blacklists) that I can almost taste it. I seem to have one ‘major’ issue and one minor one.
The major issue: I configured an email account within MS Outlook to use the new server for POP and SMTP. Since the DNS records have not yet been moved, I simply used the IP address. I clicked the button ‘Test Account Settings’ and everything seemed to proceed normally, however, I never received the test message.
When I checked out /var/log/maillog, I found the reason: postfix (I assume) rewrote the send-to address from user@mydomain to user-mydomain@mydomain. Under virtualmin->Edit Users, I see user@mydomain and under webmin->System->Users and Groups I see both user@mydomain and user-mydomain, however, the two ‘users’ are the same as the User ID is the same. (My system is configured such that when user@mydomain is created from virtualmin, that both user@mydomain and user-mydomain are created under webmin.)
I need to ensure that this rewrite does not happen. My guess is that I am one simple setting from resolving this problem, but I do not know where to look. Please help.
Regarding the minor problem: I noticed that the time reported in /var/log/maillog is wrong. This is a virtual server and I know that I cannot change the actual clock. However, I did the following: ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST localtime and after doing this, the date command and the webserver both report the proper time. However, the time reported in maillog is off by two hours. Any suggestions for how this can be fixed?
