I'm using sendmail on my webserver, which so far is working fine. However, when I send emails to the same domain I'm sending them from, they never get delivered. I temporarily changed the email information in my application to another domain, at which point it send to my domain mail accounts no problem.
// does not work $from = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' $to = 'email@example.com' // works fine $from = 'firstname.lastname@example.org' $to = 'email@example.com'
Furthermore, the server this is run on is a separate server to the one that has the mail accounts & domain set up. (+ I'm on linux)
sendmail is using the default configuration.
I've tried testing with the following command, however I seem to get a bunch of unverified sender errors. When I do this with my gmail account, it goes through OK.
echo -e "To: firstname.lastname@example.org\nSubject: Test\nTest\n" | sendmail -bm -t -v
It turns out that it just requires the email address its coming from to exist. Is there any way to bypass this?
