  • nobody mail on my server

    Hello,

    I've noticed that a lot of my forum's users don't receive any email from vbulletin (notifications, activation emails, etc). I've investigated about this issue and I've discovered that the return email of the mail that vbulletin send is [email protected] where "xxx.yyyy.com" is my server hostname and the email is returned to me with this error:

    Domain of sender address [email protected] does not exist
    This is logical, the domain yyyy.com exists but xxx.yyyy.com doesn't exist.

    So... How can I fix this? I've tried to modify the /includes/functions.php file but it didn't work.

    Thanks a lot

    This is a server issue. You'll need to contact your host.

      Sure? The server works fine, and is the php script (vBulletin) that uses the nobody address instead webmaster address that I've configured in vBulletin options.

        Yes, I'm sure that this is a server issue:

        Domain of sender address [email protected] does not exist
        You server needs to be configured to allow these emails.

          The server allows these emails, but this domain doesn't exist, Can I modify any file to expecify an address for Reply-to, From, Return-path and Envelope-to? So I would put an address that exists, so I won't have any problems.

            Sorry, I don't know of any way to modify vB to overcome this server limitation.

              I know the solution to this issue. When we split off our servers, we began getting returns due to that. I'll forward this thread to my associate who worked out the solution.

                  Here is the response I got from my associate:

                  The problem he is having, is that the server is using a name that is not in the DNS, or on a non-routable IP address (which is what you are using) I have your servers using another mail server that is setup to forward email from your database servers. That IP *is* routable, and has forward and reverse DNS lookupable.
