Subject [jira] Created: (JAMES-746) Reverse DNS Lookup Fails for Virtual Accounts

Reverse DNS Lookup Fails for Virtual Accounts

                 Key: JAMES-746
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-746
             Project: James
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: James Core
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0
         Environment: Linux, Java 5
            Reporter: Ant Kutschera

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.
