    Relay Mail Server


    Is it possible to configure a relay mail server with axigen? If it is, are there any clear steps or documentations I could use to guide me in achieving this. Please assist.

    Thanks in advance


    Based on your description, we assume you need the Axigen server to relay messages received from certain hosts.
    In order to indicate the required settings please provide the following additional details:
    - do you need the Axigen service to accept messages from a single host or multiple hosts? If you need to accept messages from multiple hosts, how many hosts are going to submit messages? Do you know the IP addresses for all these hosts?
    - will the host(s) sending messages through Axigen authenticate via SMTP or not?
    - if the host(s) will authenticate, please mention if the envelope FROM of the messages being submitted will match the authenticated user or not.




      I would test and try the axigen as relay SMTP only mail server.

      1. Axigen SMTP service to accept messages from 2 hosts. We know IP address of those.
      2. Host sending messages need to get authenticated with axigen.
      3. Envelope FROM of the message being submitted will NOT match the authenticated user.
      4. Need to view sent emails via authenticated user webmail.

      Please guide.



        Hello John,

        All points should be possible, like:

        1/ allow access only from those 2 IP address (listener or service Access Control configuration)
        2/ set a domain and a user to be used for authentication purposes
        3/ check that the default configuration for relaying is enabled (allow relaying from any IP + require authentication)
        4/ use an advanced routing rule that will add, on all messages a local recipient (for example you could use the user confgured above, at point #2) >> login with that user you'll see the messages into the webmail interface
