outgoing mail server (Client host rejected) error

Post by TFNcap » 09 May 2020 19:56

Hello to everyone


I have been using efa as the incoming server for a while
I'm glad

my question is
can I use EFA as an outgoing mail server

example
1- domain name and ip also added to efa
2- relay made from main server
when I send an email
I'm getting an error

Code: Select all

<tuxxxxxxap@gmail.com>: host 17x.20.2xx.x94[17x.20.2xx.x94] said: 554 5.7.1
    <s1.tuxxxxxst.com[17x.20.2xx.x95]>: Client host rejected: Access denied (in
    reply to RCPT TO command)
ip 17x.20.2xx.x94 EFA
ip 17x.20.2xx.x95 Sender Server (relay to efa)

I would be glad if you guide...

It's not so much from, but through. Yes you would need to configure it as a outbound relay, Unfortunately because I don't use it as such, I am not knowledgable with specifics. But when i get back to work on monday I can look into it.

Depending want you want to archive you could send e-mail from efa directly you do not need to specify an outbound smarthost. We do use it as we do not send directly the e-mails to the e-mail servers of the destination domains. We use another e-mailserver (from our webhoster) to send the e-mails out. If you operate your efa box not with a permanent IP-address you should consider this option too. (Otherwise you might be handled like a spammer.)

If your efa box is receiving e-mails from other internal MTAs (email-servers) to be forwarded outside, then you could specify under the option outbound mail relay, who is allowed to use efa within your network. We have specified several other MTAs with their IP address within our networks.

Code: Select all

Mail settings
1) Outbound mail relay
2) Outbound smarthost

I'm confused. What do you want to do exactly?

Do you want mail to route the following way?

[internal mail server] <-> [EFA] <-> [outside world]

If so, that should be very easy.

yes this is what i want

but I relay from the internal email server to efa and I get this error

efa reject main email server

Code: Select all

<tuxxxxxxap@gmail.com>: host 17x.20.2xx.x94[17x.20.2xx.x94] said: 554 5.7.1
    <s1.tuxxxxxst.com[17x.20.2xx.x95]>: Client host rejected: Access denied (in
    reply to RCPT TO command)
why refuses
Is something missing?

Did you configure your "Outbound mail relay" settings in the EFA Configuration program?

That would be under Mail Settings, Outbound mail relay

For hosts, configure it to the ip address of your [internal mail server] or to the network address of your internal network if you have multiple machines sending mail through EFA. e.g. 192.168.1.1/24

Then EFA will allow you to use it as a relay.

relay:ip : 25

I got an error because I used port 587

The problem went away when I made port 25
