Multiple Domains on 1 IP - Hostname question
Question asked by Phill Healey - January 4 at 5:11 PM
Unanswered
I have a server hosting email for about 10 domains using 1 IP address. The setup is something like this:
 
Server hostname:
server1.mx.mycompany.network
 
For simplicity, we will be asking clients of all domains to login to email via:
clients.mycompany.email
 
For simplicity let's say that our clients domains are named:
client1.com
client2.com
client3.com
...
...
client10.com
 
So, what do we put for the HOSTNAME for smartermail general settings?
 
What do we put for the HOSTNAME of each domain?
 
Also what should we enter as the reverse DNS for the server?
 
Anyone know how we should set this up?
 
 
Thanks.

so... first.. what SM version are you on. 
and second,  for your server to send out  emails .. yes you  will have to reverse DNS set AND, usually your broadband provider, has to put in reverse look-up for your server on their end as well.

Are you sure you are answering on the right question here. What's my broadband provider got to do with anything. We're talking about a proper Smartermail Win Server 2016 installation on a VPS.

Not to worry we've got the answer we need thanks.
