DNS resolving is not the problem I think. I tried to setup a connection to the
smtp server of my ISP using telnet and I get a connection. But when I send
MAIL FROM: <te...@home.lan>
RCPT TO: <eelko...@gmail.com>
I get the response that sender's domain is not recognized. For the SMTP server
of my ISP this is true. So obviously I need a sender address with a valid
domain name, at least the remote smtp server must know the domain.
Is it possible to let XMail alter the from address into a valid address? I
tried to add records in the FILTERS.POST-RCPT.TAB file with the command
"/bin/cp $(FILE) /tmp/$(FILE).tmp", just to see if the outgoing message was
copied to the tmp directory. But nothing happened.
I also added same command to the filters.post-data.tab and filters.pre-data.tab
files. No result so far. (Yes I restarted the xmail process)
