Configuration with Multiple Paths to Final Address


Recommended Posts

After reading the page on Mailhost Configuration I'm still not clear which order to use when entering hosts.  I can receive mail several ways:

  1. Host A -> Host B -> Host Final
  2. Host C -> Host A -> Host B -> Host Final
  3. Host D -> Host Final

Should the order begin with the longest path (Final/B/A/C) followed by D?  Or enter one level at a time (Final/D/B/A/C)?  Or something else?

Mailhosts can combine your hosts all together if you start with "Host C".  If you are going to report email send directly to "Host B", then you would want to have it in a separate mailhost entry.  You can do this by setting up "Host Final", then "Host B" and "Host D", then "Host A", and then "Host C".  You would do it in this order so SpamCop can split out email sent to "Host A" and email sent to "Host C".

Another option would be to temporarily turn off mail forwarding and sent to any order.
