How to Accept Emails on the Server and Forward them to Another Email Address
We need to have corporate emails like firstname.lastname@example.org and forward all incoming emails to another address.
To do it I have configured Postfix according to this article:
Also, in DigitalOcean account added DNS records like this:
A record: mail.example.com => [site IP]
MX record: example.com => mail.example.com (priority 10)
And checked that MX records are correct using different services.
After this when I send emails to email@example.com from the server (using PHP mail() function) redirect to another address works great, but when I send external emails to firstname.lastname@example.org from other addresses the server does not accept these emails and the redirect does not work.
Is it possible that DigitalOcean blocking something?
Could you please recommend a way of how to accept emails on the server and forward them to another email address?
