    Hi I am migrating to a new box and dns reports is sending me this:

    ERROR: One or more of your mailservers does not accept mail to postmaster@escuchaz.com. Mailservers are required (RFC822 6.3, RFC1123 5.2.7, and RFC2821 4.5.1) to accept mail to postmaster.


    escuchaz.com's postmaster response:<br /> >>> RCPT TO:<postmaster@escuchaz.com><br /> <<< 550 no such address here" <br />

    In every single domain can anyone help?

    Regards

    Hello screege,

    The postmaster@ address will only be setup as an alias (/etc/aliases) for your server's hostname and your server's main domain that is off the hostname. You can see the routing using this command in root SSH:

    Code:
    exim -bt postmaster@host.server.com
    exim -bt postmaster@server.com
    Here host.server.com would be your hostname and server.com would be the main domain. My machine for an example:

    Code:
    root@host [/etc]# exim -bt postmaster@host.daniellewallace.com
    abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- root@daniellewallace.com
        <-- abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- root@host.daniellewallace.com
        <-- postmaster@host.daniellewallace.com
      router = virtual_user, transport = virtual_userdelivery
    
    root@host [/etc]# exim -bt postmaster@daniellewallace.com
    abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- root@daniellewallace.com
        <-- abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- abuse@daniellewallace.com
        <-- root@host.daniellewallace.com
        <-- postmaster@daniellewallace.com
      router = virtual_user, transport = virtual_userdelivery
    If you really do require postmaster@ working for all domains on the machine, you'd need to do the following:

    I just tried this on my server, and it does work then for all of my domains to route for the postmaster@ email address.

    Since you are running MailScanner, I suggest posting on their forum. We do not support MailScanner with cPanel as it can highly conflict with our exim installation.
