Resolved: Qmail email problem

( ) – the error “553 sorry, that domain isn’t in my list of allowed rcpthosts”

To fix it, do the following:

  1. log into your mail server as root;
  2. stop qmaild:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/qmaild stop

  1. backup all needed files in the ~vpopmail/etc directory;
  2. delete the directory ~vpopmail/etc:

rm -rf ~vpopmail/etc

  1. create it anew:

mkdir ~vpopmail/etc

  1. copy backed files to this new directory;
  2. empty the file ~vpopmail/etc/open-smtp:

cat /dev/null > ~vpopmail/etc/open-smtp

  1. start qmaild:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/qmaild start
