I can't see how to define a separate internet hostname for each of my domains. This can cause a number of issues.. Anyone??

Thanks

You can do fully-qualified hostnames in the domains or aliased domains in the admin console.

Are you trying to receive mail for people at

host1.domain.com

and for

host2.domain.com

?

Trying to understand if you are having DNS issues or mailserver issues.

There is an option to specify an internet hostname. So, for example, I set that to mail.mydomain.com, which is in DNS. This is fine.

My question is, as I start to create additional domains, with different names, how do I configure Kerio to use a separate internet hostname for those domains? Otherwise, when a remote server looks up mail.separatedomain.com it's going to be greeted with a different hostname, and that could cause issues with various security/anti-spam products.

Thanks

You don't need a hostname for each domain. Just point the MX record for domain2.com to mail.mydomain.com. The hostname of the server does not have to match the domain name it's hosting mail for. The server would have no way of knowing which SMTP connection would be for which domain, so it would only answer with one hostname anyhow.

I got around this by just having a generic mail host for my hosting business and point all of the domains to it for MX records. Nobody cares that they have to connect to a different domain for email than their domain name.
