User in same Domain, but not as user in SmarterMail
Question asked by marco radoux - 4/22/2020 at 4:45 AM
Hello There,
is there perhaps a way to have a user in the same domain, but not as user in SmarterMail?

So is there an option to select if an user is not in SmarterMail to use the outbound gateway to deliver the eMail at the provider ?

Thanks for help.

Greeting Marco.

This is what people call a split domain, and you can do it (there is an article about it).

However I would avoid it at all costs, if you have another solution for what you want to achieve, because this is looking for troubles.

You have to be careful with SPF records, that they declare both servers valid for sending mails for the domain. If you use DKIM on the domain, the DKIM config should be the same for both, etc...

TLDR; It's possible but discouraged.
