Symbiosis local domain remote MX



I have a symbiosis machine I use with a domain on - but the mail is handled by another Bytemark cloud server. However, when I send emails from my account (on the same symbiosis server) it tries to delivery this locally, which fails.

Is there a way to tell symbiosis to use the MX details and not try to deliver locally?

I recently had a similar issue in cPanel - but that allows you to mark a domain as having “Remote MX” so just looking for a similar feature.

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:


I can’t remember the exact details but I think symbiosis requires an absence of [domain]/mailboxes/[boxes] and forwarding files.


Ah, that might have just done it.

I noticed I had a [domain]/config/default_forward file, which I’ve removed and it seems to be working.
