Exim/Vesta not forwarding email from a specific domain?
I’ve got a new droplet up and running, using the Vesta control panel - mostly just to try it out. Seems pretty good for most things, so far, except one: it’s having difficulty forwarding email coming FROM my primary email address.
Config is, roughly:
primarydomain.com: Removed all mail options, MX records etc - I’m using Google Apps for my email.
testdomain.com: Has a single email forwarder, email@example.com, which is forwarding to a gmail account I created specifically for testing.
When I send from firstname.lastname@example.org, via gmail, the server receives the message (I can see it in Roundcube) - but it never forwards to email@example.com.
When I send an email from firstname.lastname@example.org, if forwards no problem.
I don’t doubt it’s because primarydomain.com and testdomain.com are sharing a server - but I can’t figure out how to fix this.
