    I've noticed on a couple of domains now i've not been getting emails that are generated from scripts running on the server, It seems that the server was locally delivering to the mailbox on itself.

    However when the MX entries were entered the box in dns zone editor was unticked so that it would not happen and it *was* working fine up until recently.


    In fact in the case of one of the domains all I had to do was open up the DNS zone editor, make no changes and hit Save and it was fixed

    Although I'd be interested to know why the system suddenly decided to re-enable that domain for mail :confused: (Didn't affect email originating from outside the server as obviously that would pay attention to the MX)

    The real question being how it ended up in the local domains file in the first place since it was previously configured as a remote domain.

    The domain is probably in /etc/localdomains, it needs to be removed and added to /etc/remotedomains . That will tell the server to send any email that is sent to that domain elsewhere instead of locally

    This is a known issue. The fix for this issue will propagate through the builds shortly, but I have no exact ETA.
