    Sending mail to non-local adress

    Hello,

    I'm using a mercury system  whit a local domain name (for example testdomain.com)

    I make local users for example test1@testdomain.com and test2@testdomain.com

    When I send mail by using Pegasus to this local users everything works well. When I send mail to an non-local email-adres (for example test3@test2domain.com) it also works well.

    The mails for the local users Mercury not sent outsite but keeps on the local server.

    Now I want sent a email to test3@testdomain.com which is an email-adres outsite the server.

    How can I configure Mercury so the mail sends non-local. Now I still gets the message that de local user "test3" does not exists

    If Mercury/32 manages the mail for testdomain.com it will look at the list of local users for any mail account name address that ends in testdomain.com.

    Where were you expecting the mail message to be delivered to?

    Re: Sending mail to non-local adress

    If testdomain.com is a public domain handled by another server it shouldn't be listed as a local domain in Mercury. If you still want some specific testdomain.com addresses to be delivered to a local user you can create rules in Mercury to redirect those messages.

    Thank you Rolf for your answer. Can you tell me in a short answer what kind of a rule i have to make en where i have to do that.

    Configuration > Filtering Rules > Edit global rules... > Headers and then choose the criteria you want the rule to work on. For example, if you want mail received for test3@testdomain.com to be forwarded to test3@newdomain.com you would use the To attribute, specify test3@tesdomain.com in 'Contains this text', choose your action - Copy, forward etc., click the Set button and type test3@newdomain.com in the Set field and click OK.

    Re: Sending mail to non-local adress

    Hello,

    I think there is a misunderstanding. 

    I have 2 local users, test1@testdomain.com and test2@testdomain.com

    Both users are local users in Mercury

    There is also a 3e user test3@testdomain.com which is a non-local user.

    Now i want to sent an email from test1@testdomain.com to test3@testdomain.com using Pegasus and Mercury but mercury does not send the email, because  it comes with the message that the local user test3@testdomain.com does not exist.

    How can i make a rule or a config, so i can sent an email at the same domain to a non-local user ?

    1. Remove testdomain.com from the list of local domains in Core configuration.

    2. Add rules for the two users that you want to handle in Mercury.

    Re: Sending mail to non-local adress

    Perhaps I'm missing something really basic here, but I really don't understand this. How is the email for your domain 'testdomain.com' set up? And, what is in place that you need to forward mail for a user to the same domain, to a different server? I'd just like to understand your set up.

    Re: Sending mail to non-local adress

    I use the next configuration:

    - At my provider i have my domain "testdomain.com" with 3 email-adresses, test1@testdomain.com, test2@testdomain.com and test3@testdomain.com

    - At the office i use Mercury to get the email test1@testdomain.com and test2@testdomain.com using pop

    - The user test3@testdomain.com has its own webmail or client to manage his email.

    - Now i want to send an email from test1 to test3 using mercury.

    Well, even simpler. Just remove testdomain.com from the list of local domains in Core configuration.

    Re: Sending mail to non-local adress

    Hello,

    That is a solution, but all the local mail (for example from test1 to test2) then first goes to my provider and then comes back. Is there another option ?
