How can I set up email forward?

Hi all,

Ajenti is great, thank you!

I am new to this, apologize if I ask some stupid questions.

I have set up MX record pointing to the IP address of my 12.04 VPS. The Ajenti V (0.2.41) and Ajenti V Mail (0.1.23) are installed.

I simply created a mail account which will forward to my Gmail account. But this setup does not work.

Did I miss any other settings?
How do I debug this issue?
Has any one write a tutorial about this?

Thanks in advance!



Not only forwarding, but also simple outgoing mail exchange both require outbound SMTP connectivity.

Are you testing it by sending an email from the same Gmail account? Gmail won't accept the self-forwarded email in this case.
no, I am not. I sent the test email from Yahoo account.
Could you check /var/log/exim4/mainlog and /var/log/exim4/rejectlog for any information regarding the forwarded email?
Hi Eugene,

Thank you for the quick response.

Seems a lot of things not right.

A possible DNS/internet connectivity problem?
Please also post /etc/ajenti/mail.json (without passwords)
I can ping gmail.com, time is 1.1ms.

(no passwords, there is only one email address to forward)

Thanks a lot.
Try to actually send it by running exim -v address@gmail.com
and inputting:

Subject: test
From: root@localhost


I notice that my VPS provider blocked outbound SMTP in default. Does this cause the issue?

Here below is exim command line output:

<= root@108 U=root P=local S=310
root@108:~# delivering 1XEnwE-0001IE-DP
R: dnslookup for dengpeng.cn@gmail.com
T: remote_smtp for dengpeng.cn@gmail.com
Connecting to gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com [2607:f8b0:400e:c03::1b]:25 ... failed: Network is unreachable
Yes, totally. SMTP is obviously required to send e-mails (and it's not only used for connection between e-mail client and sender e-mail server, but also between the sender e-mail server and destination e-mail server as well).
Email forwarding also requires SMTP?

Thanks for your support!
