postmaster & abuse alias not passing DNS test
Problem reported by Jens Straten - December 4, 2015 at 12:30 PM
Submitted
Is it normal that a domain having a postmaster and abuse account as an alias is not passing DNS testing (e.g. DNSstuff)?
Wouldn't it be better to have dedicated setting entries for postmaster and abuse on domain level?
Right now I only see an option for postmaster on admin level which doesn't make much sense.

Create aliases for postmaster and abuse in each domain and point them to an address from which you will respond.
 
If you are on SmarterMail 14.4, you can set the domains to automatically used the default postmaster@ account for the primary domain, but will still have to create the abuse@ alias for each domain.

Thanks for the clarification . . .

Do you have greylisting enabled?
 
If so, set your timing to the following:
 
Minute(s)
Minute(s)
Day(s)
 
 
 
 
 
and then do an initial test, and retry about two minutes later.
 
You can also send me an e-mail with your domain name and I'll take a look at it from a couple of other tools I use.
