Subject [jira] Commented: (JAMES-746) Reverse DNS Lookup Fails for Virtual Accounts
Date Mon, 18 Dec 2006 20:56:22 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JAMES-746?page=comments#action_12459455 ] 
Ant Kutschera commented on JAMES-746:

OK, I checked again, and I had set the helloname in the pop3 config, not smtp. I have corrected
that now, restarted and resent a new email to aol, but in the latest mailet log, I still get
the error like before (I even checked the mail ID is for the new one, to ensure its not an
old mail that is bouncing).

What is strange is that the server name (mail.maxant.co.uk) used in the smtp log, is the same
domain as the sender, and maxant.co.uk has correctly configured rDNS. So I really do not know
what the problem is now. Any ideas?

> 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.
