Hi guys,

After weeks of testing on our testing domain, pmg has been working flawlessly. This morning we tried to switch it to our live email and on Tracking center almost 40% of all emails show "Accepted/Bounced". Our users are not getting them in their inbox. Here's the log:

Dec 20 08:41:42 pmg pmg-smtp-filter[7077]: A2B035DFCF9C54AA48: accept mail to <> (A891021DB1) (rule: default-accept)

Our mail server is a really old qmailtoaster on another subnet, it only has a public ip address and is open to the internet.

Any help is appreciated.
Seems that is your own server that rejects mails form your gateway?

If so, simply configure that server so that it accepts mails from your gateway without doing spf checks.
