MTA Level Outbound E-mail Address Blacklist, is that email going out?

Confused I am,
when I put an email address in MTA Level Outbound E-mail Address Blacklist,
it ends up in /var/qmail/control/badmailto

Same when I put an email address in MTA Level Inbound E-mail Address Blacklist: it ends up in /var/qmail/control/badmailfrom

very confusing to me if you ask me, can some one explain if this is correct way of me thinking?

Thanks Nico

Hi @Nico

Your right its not really clear and I’m not sure myself. Could you open a ticket so support can confirm the behaviour and update our docs as well as let our Devs know what they want the quick help tips to say.

Hi

@Nico @IWorx-Joseph I am sorry, I thought Nico was using v7 as I did not recognise some screenshots he sent me

I have just finished onsite and have to drive home but quickly, this makes perfect sense to me now as folllows:

You need to remember we are talking about sending/receiving from your server, so

MTA level Outbound Email Address is email been sent from your server - email address should go in badmailto (to address)

eg from [email protected] been sent to [email protected]

MTA level Inbound Email Address is email been received to your server - email address shoudl go in badmailfrom (from address)

eg to [email protected] been sent from [email protected]

I hope this explains it better and I think once you remember it is from the perspective of been sent/from your server, it makes sense

Many thanks

John

Hi John,
so it is correct in the Nodeworx settings, and from server perspective it is also in the correct files.
Phwww.
Thanks a zillion.
