Hi,

A customer's Kerio Connect server can not deliver emails to a particular domain because of some odd spam-filter rules and firewall setup.
This domain's email server can be reached directly, avoiding the spam filter, but then I need Kerio Connect to send email to this domain directly to this domain's email server. Can that be done?

Yes, you can setup this domain in Kerio but define no users for it. Then set:

"If the recipient was not found in this domain, forward mail to the following host"

Put in the host name of the recipient's mail server.

This can be found on the "Forwarding" tab of each domain.

This trick is useful when certain services (in my case Verizon) wouldn't accept mail from one of the servers I administer.

I just used it to relay mail to Verizon through our ISP's mail relay server.

If your ISP requires authentication for relay, then you need to tweak this a bit by then setting up something like PostFix (which supports authentication for mail relay) on an alternate port (2525 or such), then forwarding to the local address (e.g. 127.0.0.1:2525) which PostFix will happily accept and forward on to your ISP.

Would be nice if we had native authenticated relay options inside Connect, but I don't run into the problem often enough that I need to put it up as a feature suggestion and use my votes for it.

Cheers,
Jon
