on the internet, there are no "nations". what do you mean by "works locally"? how are you using it without a domain?

if you're new to setting up and maintaining internet email servers, you likely made a mistake by using qmail -- especially if you're not very good at unix. you should consider paying someone experienced to look over your setup before you go "live". there are tens of thousands (at least!) of badly configured mail servers out there.

better yet, switch to postfix before you go live.

yes, you need a domain, and a static ip address so that you can receive email. you also need reverse dns set up for the ip address. some of it is described in the lwq docs and in the reference manuals.

incoming mail? sure. outgoing mail? why? surely if you send mail to exampleuser@gmail.com you'd want the mail to go there, not to your local account.

Hiz Salam..
Dear Lambda...

Ok I tell u My scenerio In detail..Due to some reasons my boss took this actions as below..

Actually my Boss desires that block all e-mail sites like. gmail,yahoo,hotmail...and messengers like yahoo,skype and msn. Employes can only browse internet for researching purpose...I think it can be done in proxy server...that will be my second job after completing mail server...as below..

Another thing he desires that Sales & Accounts dept (where i implement qmail server) ca use our domain for e-mails and all mails that is to be send and recieve by any employe will be automaticaly forwarded to : director@abcdomain.com..


I resolved this issue partially that all incoming mails automatically forwards.. but i unable to foward outing mails...I search google alot finally i got some links which i mentioned here..so plz guide me.....

sending all incoming mail to a certain address is different from sending a copy to a certain address. which do you want?

for the former, just add an alias entry for sales@yourhost or marketing@yourhost that sends the messages to boss@yourhost. for the latter, deliver to ./Maildir/ or wherever, and also send a copy to boss@yourhost.
