The transport file
Hello,
In our company we have one exchange mail server and one ispCP server, we also have a spam mail server and a secondary backup spam mail server.

My work mail is on the exchange server and when mail adressed to me arrives to the ispCP it forward the mail to our spam mail server and then to the Exchange server. The problem is here that the ispCP sends it to the secondary spam mail server. where can i change so that it sends it to the other spam mail server (the primary) or even better, directly to the Exchange server. I want to controll this in ispCP and i thought it was the transport file /etc/postfix/ispcp/transport but it wasnt or i am not supposed to change in that file, so where?

Thanks

Hello ;

just for the record, what is the content of the related DNS zone file ? (mx entries) ? Also, please, show us your main.cf content.

RE: The transport file
1. You're right in that the transport maps is one of the places where you should setup this stuff. Remember that you must change BOTH /etc/ispcp/postfix/working/transport AND /etc/postfix/ispcp/transport. Basically, you should add a line there with something like:
Code:
domain.tld     smtp:[your.exchange.ip.address]
Notice that the brackets [] MUST be there (otherwise postfix would try to lookup the MX entry for your.exchange.ip.address and fail miserably).

2. Additionally, you must also remove (or comment) the domain from the local domains list (/etc/ispcp/postfix/working/domains AND /etc/postfix/ispcp/domains).

Once you've applied this changes, postmap the files and reload postfix:
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/ispcp/{transport,domains}
/etc/init.d/postfix/reload

... and that's it. The server will relay any mails it receives for "domain.tld" to your exchange server.

RE: The transport file
Hello,

just to confirm. If i add lines to these files, i hope that nothing will happen with the other mail domains/accounts. we have several and its just about two domains that needs to be transported to our internal Exchange mail server. All the other domains will still be able to send their mails, right?
