Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-746) Reverse DNS Lookup Fails for Virtual Accounts
Date Mon, 18 Dec 2006 19:12:24 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-746?page=comments#action_12459431 ] 
Norman Maurer commented on JAMES-746:

A mailserver will everytime HELO/EHLO with the servername. Thats what rfc say. James use the
ther helloname which is set in smtpserver block. You should use their mail.maxant.co.uk there.

Here is the dig output:

Fileserver:~# dig @ns.byteaction.de maxant.co.uk MX

> My server runs multiple domains. I use the JDBC Virtual Host mailet. Everything normally
works fine, but if the user sends email to AOL or other picky domains, the mails bounce, and
it complains rDNS is not set correctly. Searching on sites like www.dnsstuff.com I am sure
that the reverse DNS is configured properly. It seems that AOL looks at the server name given
in the protocol, as opposed to the "from" address, and does a  reverse lookup and compares
to that name. But that name is taken from the server name, not the virtual account name, so
at best I can get one domain to work if I give the server the same name as that one domain.
> James should be putting the domain name from the users account into the protocol, not
the server name, if it truly supports virtual hosting.
