Hello
I have a small server with a handful of domains. The server is configured to route all mail through a smart host. However there is one domain I need to be direct and not use a smart host. I found the email options and tried to set this domain to “Local Exchanger” but didn’t seem to do the trick. I’m not that familiar with exim but pretty fluent with postfix. Is there a quick and easy way to accomplish this or anyone know of an article or something to go by maybe?
Thanks

Hey there! Unfortunately there is no quick and easy way, as you have to manually adjust the Smarthost and Exim settings. There are some potentially-helpful details on this here:


Could you also add your concerns to this thread?


We're trying to get feedback on common email issues, and I've seen smarthost configuration come up quite a bit lately.
