    Hi Shane,

    What you need to do? If you configure a FQDN on your elastix server and send a message, it will be delivered to the right server.

    I wanted the system to send to my smtp server will then distribute. In the previous trixbox build I used there was a "setup-mail" command that allowed me to set the FQDN and then I edited a sendmail file to set the detsination smtp server. I dont want the Elastix box to send directly to the net as I want to use for inbound fax and all faxes must go to my internal network ad not waste bandwidth send it out of my org and then back in :). Secondly even though I have set my fqdn I am not recieving faxes at the destination email that I setup in the virtual fax configuration.

    Oh! That's a "little" bug. In a fresh install there is not "/etc/postfix/virtual.db" file, and e-mail messages are not delivered.

    Please, in a shell console run the next commands:

    cd /etc/postfix
    postmap virtual

    And messages will be delivered.

    I'll check how to send messages to another SMTP server.

    Thanks
