Well, another stupid error on my behalf.....I forgot to change my iptable rules to allow access to port 25 from outside my network. I need some sleep now. *zzzz*

Hi Scott,

> if you are saying i need to kill qmail-send.

No; Rick told you to send a HUP.

Anyway, you need to send a HUP to _qmail-smtpd_, not qmail-send, as the
rcpthosts file is read by qmail-smtpd, not qmail-send. vpopmail normally
does this automatically, but obviously did not in your case.

That's what supervise is for.

Enter "/var/qmail/bin/qmail-qstat" and see if they're in the
"unprocessed" state.

This can be achieved easier with "qmail-showctl".

You have logs, so there's no need to "it seems like". Your test mail
comes from the same domain that makes trouble, so qmail cannot send a
bounce and will deliver it to the postmaster. If the postmaster address
points to this address, too, you'll have a triple bounce, and qmail will
discard it as it doesn't find a valid address to deliver the mail or a
bounce message.

The first message is generated by UID 500, which is propably the
qmail-smtpd user. The second message is generated by UID, which is
probably the qmail-queue user. Check your /etc/passwd to be sure.
