I have set up gmail google app accounts for our own domain,
domain.com, so that email is handled by gmail. I.e. MX records point to google servers, A records to our own server IP. This works fine.
Now I tried sending emails from our machine (via
crontab, using Debian's
exim4) to our own email address, e.g.
This doesn't work. Presumably exim is seeing the address as local and fails to forward it to the google servers. The delivery fails with:
Subject: Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed: firstname.lastname@example.org Unrouteable address
and is then unhelpfully delivered to
Emails to other addresses -- outside of
domain.com -- work ok.
I looked at the configs under
/etc/exim4/conf.d/ but couldn't make sense of it.
Any help is welcome. Cheers!
