HeloHost issues multiple domains or disabling


(Loren Tedford (Kc9Zhv)) #1

I have finally gotten neth 7 working correctly in our new location and now that we don’t have funky ip gateway settings things are going much smoother.

Helohost is putting my ip as a spam what ever on some spam watch dog things…

so i have multiple domains how do i add multiple domains on this or completely disable helohost altogether.

Here is what i thought the command did.

config setprop postfix HeloHost lorentedford.com ltcraft.net ilhamradio.org kc9zhv.com kc9zhr.com voipham.com mdsucks.com newwavesucks.com

signal-event nethserver-mail-common-save

Is this how it works? or can i just disable it completely?

Usually you’d just need one resolvable hostname.

If it doesn’t work with HeloHost you may try this:

So does this mean in place of Banner Host I put each domain or how does this work? I am a bit confused.

You only need one domain.

Ok thanks I will try this!

So for some reason or another it didn’t work i got a message where it felt like my ip needed blocked. It requested that i put the ip in boxed [] <- Example of how it looked. Brackets… what is CBL anyway also it keeps leading me back to this site.

Maybe you changed the banner in a wrong way, you should use an FQDN like mailserver.domain.tld.

To check your banner (exit with CTRL-C):

cat < /dev/tcp/

Here is what i got…

[root@webserver ~]# cat < /dev/tcp/
220 webserver.lorentedford.com ESMTP Postfix
[root@webserver ~]#

Also according to Name Cheap under DNS it should be even pointed to the right location.
So not sure what is up.

It should be mail.domain.com instead of webserver.domain.com.
