Hi,

Current i set my dns for proxmox mail gateways already
which also setup domain-mx point to promox-mail-gateways eg. "email.domain.com"

For Incoming Its work already and i can see on proxmox-mail-traffic,
But for Outgoing i don't know how to set it up. when i sentmail, it using exim original to
send out and didn't pass to Proxmox-mail-gateway.

Do i need to config anything extra more???

Additional Infomation
Mail Server = vestacp with exim4.x
Exim still in original config from vestacp.com
DNS . = email.domain.com point to "Promox Mail Server"
Domain.com has webmail which config dns mx to email.domain.com

Just Config the DNS on MX record point to "Promox Mail Gateway"
But you need to do A record point to "Promox Mail Gateway" IP.

For example, mailgateway.domain.com to 555.777.999.888
then config MX record to mailgateway.domain.com.
Dont forgot to open port 26 on your mail server too

Please send information about outgoing config with exim?
Seem your install doc doesn't have this detail

Just check your exim docs or contact your exim support. you should tell your exim mail server to send all outgoing emails to the mail gateway, using the internal port.

I used to config exim to send with sendgrid acount which it need user/pass to logon before sent
like this link https://forum.vestacp.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=11335

Code:
begin authenticators

sendgrid_login:
  driver = plaintext
  public_name = LOGIN
  client_send = : sendgridusername : sendgridpassword

begin routers

send_via_sendgrid:   
driver = manualroute   
domains = ! +local_domains   
transport = sendgrid_smtp   
route_list = "* smtp.sendgrid.net::587 byname"   
host_find_failed = defer   no_more

But for proxmox where is the user/pass to config??
Or else it doesn't need user/pass to send throght PMG?

Hi, i have config smarthost in exim already

Here is the config in Exim
Code:
smarthost:
  driver = manualroute
  domains = ! +local_domains
  transport = remote_smtp
  route_list = * mailgateway.domain.io::26
  no_more
  no_verify

Which i see on the exim log it got this error

Code:
2018-02-20 01:02:42 1enply-0001Ha-Lk <= chai@domain.me H=(ketspace.io) [127.0.0.1] P=esmtp S=611 id=3eae27bea5470427e19bfd417817ce87@domain.me

And i found that on "Promox Mail Gateway" Already has sent mail pass from my mail server,
but the problem is that it was reject to sentout why?

Then i see this error on "Tracking Center"
In Additional information, need to cencer my IP into xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
