rayvd Posted March 20, 2006 Share Posted March 20, 2006 I have multiple email addresses that all end up in the same mailbox. I check this mailbox via POP3 with fetchmail and all the mail is then delivered to my account on my local machine (private IP on a private LAN) via Postfix. I've been trying to set up the mailhost system, but it kept complaining about the host entry that fetchmail adds to the envelope. In this case the hostname isn't a real address, just the name of my computer with my domain name appended. I tried changing that to "localhost", but now spamcop wants to try and verify "myuser[at]locallhost.comain". I could probably set up a real DNS A record for <mymachinename>.<domain> that points to an IP address, but it wouldn't be pointing to my box's real IP address since it's a private IP. What do you guys suggest? I have several more email addresses like this to apply for, and doing a waiver for all of them will be kind of a pain. EDIT: Probably would be helpful to attach some output: Return-Path: <service[at]admin.spamcop.net> X-Original-To: rayvd[at]localhost Delivered-To: rayvd[at]localhost.digitalpath.net Received: from localhost (localhost [127.0.0.1]) by keenpal.digitalpath.net (Postfix) with ESMTP id 7B78D45C430 for <rayvd[at]localhost>; Mon, 20 Mar 2006 01:26:09 -0800 (PST) Delivered-To: rayvd[at]digitalpath.net Received: from mail.digitalpath.net [126.96.36.199] by localhost with POP3 (fetchmail-188.8.131.52) for rayvd[at]localhost (single-drop); Mon, 20 Mar 2006 01:26:09 -0800 (PST) Received: (qmail 6360 invoked by uid 1546); 20 Mar 2006 09:25:59 -0000 Received: from 184.108.40.206 by pop (envelope-from <service[at]admin.spamcop.net>, uid 504) with qmail-scanner-1.25 (clamdscan: 0.87.1/1338.

Mail to rayvd[at]corp.digitalpath.net follows the following path: Internet -> MX server for corp.digitalpath.net -> Exchange server -> Qmail server -> My local machine (via fetchmail, POP3 polled) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
