Outbound SMTP Relay per Domain
Question asked by Jeremy Farrance - October 15, 2016 at 10:56 AM
Answered
I have a SmarterMail server (v13 still) with about 500 users across 20+ domains. I have 1 domain on this server that I need to send all its outbound messages through a specific SMTP Relay. I understand how to setup the whole server to have all messages use an outbound SMTP relay, but I only want this one client/domain to have their messages get routed. All the other domains should continue to send out their deliveries direct from SmarterMail. Is there some way to accomplish this?

The easiest way to achieve this would be to setup Exim on CentOS. Then setup a custom transport rule within Exim to deliver all email from the specific domain to the smarthost then all other email by DNS/MX resolution. An outbound route would then be defined within Smartermail to send all outbound email via Exim.
 
It requires some Linux experience but provides ultimate flexibility in mail routing / handling that far outstrips anything Smartermail can do. If you are not familiar with Exim invest the time to learn as it will pay off.

Hi Jeremy.  This KB Article will explain how to route a single domain through a separate SMTP gateway.

That is really interesting. We had a discussion here about doing it using spool priorities but decided it was too much of a hack and we were convinced there had to be a way to do it properly... which instigated my post. So, a) thank you, will we give that a try and b) please seriously consider this as a future-feature request. It seems very logical (strong, obvious use-case) to be able to specify a Gateway per domain. Hopefully this is on the roadmap for v16 or v17?
