    Hmailserver and roundcube webmail - small problem!


    Hi, im using hmailserver and roundcube webmail for my hosting site.

    When i try email an account hosted with hmailserver from my main email which is an ISP email, i get this. However, i can email other prople from my main email!

    ----- Transcript of session follows ----- ... while talking to megahosting.co.nz.:

    554 5.0.0 Service unavailable
    >>> DATA
    <<< 503 Must have sender and recipient first.

    any ideas? why is it using SMTP on the megahosting account when it is not the one SENDING the mail, but receiving.

    I am trying to send fom mymailemail@thatworks.com to support@megahosting.co.nz that then returns an undeliverable email

    Thanks!

    Because SMTP only talks to another SMTP MTA

    So i disabled SMTP auth from internal to internal, internal to external, external to external, and external to internal.

    Is this bad?

    Thanks!
