Mail Resolving locally

    Having issues with scripts like Matts sendmail on a couple domains that have the mail split off to another server for exchange. I have mail disabled per domain but I am guessing its still trying to resolve locally. I can sent mail from the domain and everyone gets it except the people using exchange (same domain name).

    Its just not matts but also a mailer script with use for a list.

    Plesk version 7.x used to work by disabling mail. Does something need to be done different?

    I have the same or similar problem. A domain hosted on plesk delivers mail locally even when the mail mx is not local and mail for that domain is disabled.

    Example: If my ISP webpages domain is on the plesk server in a server farm (www.mydomain.com), but the mail server (mail.mydomain.com) is in my facility. DNS mx records set appropriately.
    A client has a domain (www.theirdomain.com) on the plesk server but they want email forwarded to their account on my ISP mail server mail.mydomain.com since I am their ISP.

    It does not work. The mail gets caught on the plesk server.
