I hope someone here can provide some asisstance.

Our company hosts e-mail for our clients on an old Cobalt box and it is on its last legs.
I ran across the Ad for KMS in MacWorld and checked out the site. Looks promising since I have this G5 server sitting around. Why not try it out?

I have a Mac G5 server running Tiger 10.4.2.
I installed the trial of KMS.
We host the DNS for our clients as well as our own.
I create my primary domain and also create two other test domains ( and and also create some users for both.

Using either MS Outlook Express or Mac's Mail client, I can send/receive using the public IP of the KMS box. I can also Telnet on port 25 and get the ESMTP banner as a response.

What I am hoping this KMS box will do is host the e-mail for our clients who are outside our network. I can go into the DNS manager and assign public IPs for the two test domains but where in the KMS Manager do I go to setup the KMS to listen for SMTP/POP traffic for those public IPs?

For example:
The Mac KMS' NIC is configured with a static public IP address of : is configured in our DNS manager with a public address of .130 is configured in our DNS manager witha public address of .131
Both domains have MX and A Records with a reverse pointer setup for thoses IP's.

I want to be able to ping/telnet and How does the KMS respond to the requests when its own public IP is different from those 2 other domains?

Any asisstance would be greatly appreciated.

Well, you would need to add the ...130 and ...131 addresses to the NIC for traffic to be routed to them. But actually there would be no benefit, as the Kerio mailserver just listens on all addresses the same. So define the MX records for all the domains to point at ...121, and choose a reverse DNS entry that will offend no one.
