outgoing registration email is not going I running webserver server behind a proxy


Hi,
I have a small problem to which I do not have a clue.
I am having a linux router which has a public IP and have hosted a few websites from computers which are on lan.
The scenario is like this

Code:
 router--->  www.myserver.com         internal LAN ip 192.168.0.1 

  domu1----->www.myserver.com/domu1    on internal LAN 192.168.0.11

  domu2----->www.myserver.com/domu2    on internal LAN 192.168.0.12

  domu3----->www.myserver.com/domu3    on internal LAN 192.168.0.13
 
  domu4----->www.myserver.com/domu4    on internal LAN 192.168.0.14

Now the sites www.myserver.com/domu1 to domu4 all have registration pages.
I have drupal as web development platform.These sites can be accessed on internet with only home pages.
When a user tries to create a new account on any of them the outgoing registration email is not going.
What steps should I do to check it ?
How can it be made possible?
I googled about SMTP configuration and came across that Drupal does not seems to have good SMTP configuration http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-855064.html

I do hope the servers reside in a DMZ. If they don't then please redesign your network again.

The listed URI isn't about "good SMTP configuration" but about the user not configuring their MTA good (not relaying email through ISP mail servers). Check your mail server logs for clues. If unsure post (or attach) your configuration (without commented-out lines!) in BB cod tags and excerpts from your mail server log you think are relevant (obscuring any names or addresses if needed).

I am a bit new to what you are saying let me know some thing that I should read or the location of files you need to post here.
MX records are missing some one guessed that not yet tried that.

If you're new to GNU/Linxu then I suggest you first seal off your servers from external network access until you are more comfortable running them. Exposing servers that aren't hardened to hostile networks can make for easy targets without you ever realizing. Before you move on the MTA problem I strongly suggest you read http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/se...-debian-howto/ at least twice and act on it. (If you've got questions about hardening servers search http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ux-security-4/ and maybe post a thread there.) Then see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...ilserver+HOWTO, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Po...ilserver+HOWTO and http://missingmanuals.com/pub/a/onla...2/postfix.html (and probably not http://www.postfix.org/DEBUG_README.html but it couldn't hurt to read anyway). * Please note that getting things right may sound like an arduous task when you are expected (nobody is forcing you, OK?) to read documentation and crawl through log files but in the end it will help you in terms of knowing where to find information (which is half of having knowledge IMHO) which in turn leads to self-reliance.
