The router has the routable IP address and is forwarding incoming port 25 tcp connections to the real mail server using NAT. As far as the internet side is concerned your entire network has to look like a single server, so the mailserver has to pretend to be running on the router, and announce itself as mail.whitneybaptist.org. You'll probably need to pass your outgoing mail through another mail server to avoid its being rejected though. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
