I've just setup a VPS using VestaCP on Ubuntu 14.04, and am using the default exim mail server.
I would like to be able to forward mail to root@ onto another email address. But I'm getting a ton, and I mean a heap, of these error messages in my log:
2015-02-12 02:08:02 H=(mail.onlythebible.com) [126.96.36.199] sender verify defer for <firstname.lastname@example.org>: remote host address is the local host
I'm actually a little confused (excuse my ignorance) is email@example.com (my mail server) the same as root@localhost? Why would emails be sent there?
exim -bt root@localhost returns the following:
LOG: MAIN remote host address is the local host: localhost (while routing <root@localhost>) root@localhost cannot be resolved at this time: remote host address is the local host
I've tried aliases, ~/.forward, and few other things on google, but so far no luck.
