believe it or not, I do realize that this is a bit off topic to this mailing
list but I have been having unexplained phenomenon where my posts to qmail
list do not get through although I am receiving all the posts.
So I thought I give it a try here. I think most subscribers here use qmail
and rblsmptd as well.
I guess I am hoping it doesn't bother people too much to solicit some
response from here.

I read all that in the doc before and have a basic understanding how it
works. My requirement is a bit different and I haven't come across any

Well, as I explained, the control point I am trying to achieve is at the

Yes, I thought of different MX records as well but this would necessitate
running qmail on a separate server since I cannot run 2 instances of
qmail-smtpd on the same port (25) on the same server even if each is using a
different virtual IP. At least I don't think I can.

Thanks for trying. I am still trying to find out why is it that I cannot
post to the qmail list.
