Bounce Mails
« on: September 20, 2012, 09:16:10 AM »

Hi,
How does PMTA deal with bounce mails for the domains specified in "virtual-mta" ?
When I send a mail to a non-existing address with a "From" domain which is not in pmta config, I receive the bounced mail back to the "From" address account. But, when I send a mail to the same non-existing address with a "From" domain that is configured with pmta(as vmta), I am not receiving the mail on the "From" address account.

Pmta shows this bounce message on the account log - b,2012-09-20 11:08:02+0200,2012-09-20 11:08:02+0200,no-reply@abc.com,dsfsdfsd@sds12ds.com,,failed,5.1.2 (bad destination system: no such domain),,,bad-domain,smtp,(127.0.0.1),,5.135.17.1,,,,timta1,,,sds12ds.com/timta1 .

Here abc.com is a vmta.

PowerMTA sends bounces by default to the SMTP MAIL FROM address via SMTP, unless configured otherwise.  So, unless you have PowerMTA configured to handle mail differently in your config file for the SMTP MAIL FROM domain (regardless if it is a host name for your virtualMTA or unrelated), you need to troubleshoot delivery issues from PowerMTA to this domain.

The usual delivery troubleshooting steps apply, since these are just email messages that PowerMTA is attemptingto deliver;

What errors are listed for the queue on connection attempts?
What results when you run the trace command for the domain/virtualMTA?

No bounce processing configurations are made on the config file.

This is the output of race command.

I can send mail to "medianowmail.co.uk" domain. But, only bounces are not delivered, being the from address as "user@medianowmail.co.uk" .
