Mail/Horde issues

    I am having some problems with Horde and some php forms on my server. Through the following information I hope someone can shed some light on the issues..

    First lets get the basics out of the way.. I am running Plesk 7.5.4 reloaded on Linux Fedora core2 2.4.20-021stab022.1.777.

    All is running well except when I try to send mail from Horde to a mail server that is other then a local host.. In other words the mail exchange server is redirected to a server off network.. When I try to send an email to the mail exchange server I receive this error through Horde...

    There was an error sending your message: unable to add recipient [emailaddress@domain.com]: Invalid response code received from server

    Here is the DSN for the domain that receives this error....

    ns1.domain.com. NS ns1.ddomain.com.
    domain.com. NS ns2.domain.com.
    domain.com. A
    mail.domain.com. A off network server)
    ftp.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    www.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    lists.domain.com. CNAME domain.com.
    domain.com. MX (10) mail.domain.com.
    domain.com. MX (30) backup.mail.server.com. / 24 PTR domain.com.

    Does anyone have any ideal as to why this domain that has an off network mail exchange server gets this error?

    Shouldn't it be:
    domain.com. NS ns1.domain.com.

    And since this domain's mail is all external, have you removed the domain from the /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains file?

    And verified that the /var/qmail/control/smtproutes file does contain a line:


    This is so that Qmail will know specifically where to forward email for that domain.

    This worked... Thank you jamesyeeoc..

    I will have to remember this the next time I redirect the mail exchange server.. It appears that qmail in conjunction with smtp was looking for the domain at the localhost level...

    Thanks again
