• Secondary email (netmail) domain restrictions?

    From Waethorn@VERT to All on Mon Sep 12 13:31:31 2022
    If I add another domain via the domains.cfg file, does Synchronet automatically create aliases for every user (new or existing) on those secondary domains using their existing email username part? I want to make sure it doesn't as I have some alternate addresses for myself on different domains that I want to use for admin purposes (likely via alias.cfg) without other users getting email on those domains. I only want them getting messages via the system domain specified in SCFG.

    Oh, and I realize I'll still need to set up the appropriate MX and anti-spam DNS records for the additional domains.

    You could create a mailproc event to specifically reject emails for your alternate domains for users other than your identified user (sysop).

    Is that a question?
