I am using Mandrill mail server for sending emails to users and I have my own domain added to Mandrill to send out mails. Suppose I have configured Mandrill to use
email@example.com to send out emails and then it should send mails which it does. And any reply sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org will be forwarded to traditional mailboxes.
Now I have a doubt on receiving emails via Mandrill, once I add an inbound domain and route its path to my desired location, it should be ready to receive mails. Well I have read similar questions on Stack Overflow and it has been said that if someone wants to use traditional mailboxes for receiving mails then its better not to use Mandrill or use a custom sub domain.
Also it has been said that it is not possible for Mandrill to receive mail which is already configured or forwarded to some other traditional mailboxes.
So I added a sub domain to Mandrill’s inbound domain like
inbound.mydomain.com and receive emails on this domain which will be received by Mandrill and will be send to the desired route which we set up. Now I will have to change my sender domain with the same that is
inbound.mydomain.com to make users reply to this domain which will be received at Mandrill. What I want is :
Send mails using
Receive mails to my location using inbound domains
