master.gif Hi ! I recently put a new Xmail v1.20 svr online in our small company. We use ADSL, and our domain (.com) is dynamically updated at DynDns.org. The server is (as you know) very strong.
BUT, our main problem is the anti spamming overal system: many lists show us because our IP is in the "dial-up" range.
All test Iīve runned against our server were successfull, but this problem is very hard to handle.
So "Dynamic or Static?": it seems the System is not perfect enough today!

The prob here is the anti SPAM policy of some recipient servers, including AOL and other huge providers. The only solution is to forward outgoing traffic to your ISP's SMTP.

master.gif I agree, but I couldnīt find a way to forward to my ISP smtp only the EXTERNAL traffic, because as I understand, If I configure that so every internal mailbox 'must' (accordingly to Davideīs readme) autenticate to the ISP server.
Is it true? Anybody knows how can I forward only external traffic?

If your local domain is named different, XMail will only forward outbound messages. Use smtpfwd.tab for this.

Fine - to complete things:

Rest see manual.

of course, i'm assuming that nobody with a dial-up connection is hosting a mail server  :blink:

Why shouldn't someone with dialup run a mailserver? There's a lot of people who do just that - including me.
BTW: The existence of DU-Blacklist shows that DU-Mailserver *do* exist ;-)

I am in one of those countries where it costs a bundle to obtain a fixed ip. At the same time my ISP did me a great "favour" by blocking SMTP traffic (at least on port 25).

I am also with DynDNS (with my own "custom" domain). In order to receive mail I had to purchase their mail-relay package and got my incomming mail going yesterday.

My outgoing mail is pretty limmited by my ISP as well (size and number of addressees - 20 max). I am in the process of trying to configure X-mail to use DynDNS's out mailhop service. That requires SMTP authentication on the remote server. Unless someone can tell me an easy way to configure, I will have to go in the deepend and figure that out in the morning.

Well there is a free service at rollernet.us for redirecting mail to a nonstandard smtp port. And I mean it is really FREE. I use it but for MX backup.

I have FREEBSD box I built to host my ns.1 dns server then I have friend that does ns2. for me I do the same for him. Then on the FD box I have ns3 for backup. I used to run my email on a winblowz box. Then I found Xmail ( It ROCKS ) Now I host xmail on the FD box ( Fedora Core box ). So I am not depenant one winblowz box that has to be rebooted ever so offten and might fail for a number of reason's. My FREEBSD box uptime is as follows.
