Exim/Vesta not forwarding email from a specific domain?

Posted March 12, 2015 6.6k views


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: Removed all mail options, MX records etc - I’m using Google Apps for my email. Has a single email forwarder,, which is forwarding to a gmail account I created specifically for testing.

When I send from, via gmail, the server receives the message (I can see it in Roundcube) - but it never forwards to
When I send an email from, if forwards no problem.

I don’t doubt it’s because and are sharing a server - but I can’t figure out how to fix this.

So.... several hours - and re-installs - later. Was right all along.
