    Squirrel Mail Error--mailbox name not allowed


    Hi Linux Geeks,

    I had a problem on my mail server running Squirrel 1.4.1 on my RH9 Server.

    The following error occured after I tried to send mail inside my Squirrel on our Web Server. As follows

    Requested action not taken: mailbox name not allowed
    Server replied: 553 5.3.0 <jay@domain.com>... User unknown


    I already made an alias on my Sendmail /etc/mail/alias file for the jay@domain.com as follows:

    jay: jaymail

    where:
    jay is the server login account.
    jaymail is the valid email account.

    but still having the problem.
    How can I get through with this error? Any idea will be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks[/b]

    ola,

    I have various aliases but use sendmail.

    info: user1

    The above is a copy of an entry from the alias file.
    After adding a new alias, in this case info for user1 i only need
    to restart the sendmail deamon and it works.

    The email address that you can use will be : info@domain.com
    and the receiver will be user1
    User1 is also the login.

    Yes, the following entries were already included in my /etc/mail/alias file.

    I am using sendmail and can deliver outgoing mails using squirrel webmail whenever Iam using an account which have no alias or those users who have a linux account and mail account identical.

    What should I do to fix it? Any idea?[/b]

    Let's see if I get it right: You want to send email using the alias instead of the useraccount ? Right.
    To do so, set the reply to setting to that alias..
    If a user wants to reply it will see the mail alias instead of the user account.
    Or specify that your sending email address is : alias@domain.com, instead of username@domain.com.

    As I don't have nor use squirrel, I can't tell you where these settings are located.

    It's not possible to log into a server using an alias name.
    As far as I know of.

    Yes, I know. Two servers are involved in the authentication.

    I consider changing my local account user to use the same account as to its email. When i logon to my squirrel webmail server, just like the old account "jaymail" the new account "jay" can logon successfully without a problem. However, whenever I try sending mail the same problem persist.

    Any recommendations?
