Hi Sir,

I have installed and configured Postal SMTP Server. Everything is working well and good.

the only concern is, now if I try to connect SMTP server using Port: 2525 through outlook, t's not working.

is there any way to check the same?

Thanks in Advance

Sachin

Hi friend, by default port 25 will work only, if you want to route smtp traffic using another port you have to run the following command on your server:

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --dport 2525 -j REDIRECT --to-port 25

Hi friend, the bounces are replied to the return address which is in postal.

you need to handle bounces using an email marketing system like mailwizz as an example.

HI I really thank full for your reply.

my question is like this:

Whenever we send normal emails by using outlook, if the email ID is wrong or domain listed.

We get directly bounce emails to my sender ID, but where i postal SMTP, which is configured with outlook email. and I am sending emails using outlook, But I am not getting bounce email's to the same.

is it any way possible to do so?

where we can get bounced emails directly to sending ID using postal SMTP just like power MTA?

 

Really appreciate your help on this.

 

Thanks & Regards

Sachin

Postal has a custom random return address. no, you cant get bounces back to outlook, as the sender address is different from the bounce address.

honestly, Till today, I didnt find a solution to this, if I find one, I will share it.

Hi Team,

I got a VPS from contabo using your affiliate link I guess.  Now when I try to paste the postal/postfix set up command in putty it does not install and gives me rabbitmq error. I followed various tutorials to fix but I am unable to download.

need help in setting up coz I am stuck at the initial step itself.
