hi,

thanks for posting, but what exactly is your problem?

please describe your current setup (without proxmox) and your idea how to integrate proxmox in your mail system.

First, make sure that you have a license with your mail domain (just download one from www.proxmox.com).

a mail domain looks like: domain.com

then, forward the smtp traffic from the internet to your proxmox. so all incoming emails are sent to proxmox.

now, configure the default relay in proxmox (enter here the IP address of your exchange server). the default relay is the server where proxmox forwards all filtered emails.

no, for incoming emails you can leave everything on the exchange as before.

mail flow incoming:

internet (25) - Firewall - Proxmox - Exchange


mail flow outgoing:

Exchange (26) - Proxmox (26) - Internet (25)

hi,

please send the log from an incoming message, who is the sender, who is the recipient, what is your mail domain.

please use to message tracking center to query these logs.

hi,

this says that the domain does not exist in dns.
hakim@deicingxxxxxxx.com

this has nothing to do with proxmox. if you have any issues on proxmox, please send the logs from proxmox as I pointed you in the last post.

I'm sorry. I read this document last night. I have the document in front of me right now. I changed all the setting just like the document said. I'm confused on 7.3 postfix setting. the default_transport = smtp:1.2.3.4:26. the ip address should be my exchange server?
