qmail vpopmail problem
I have a linux Red Hat 7.3 server box.
I've correctly installed qmail with vpopmail.
It works fine with the first domain I created (say but i have some problem with the domain that I have added (using vadddomain of vpopmail).
Here is the problem: accounts can send e-mail messages but cannot receive.
So if I try to send a message from my Yahoo account to I receive the following:
Message from
Unable to deliver message to the following address(es).
<>: does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed
rcpthosts (#5.7.1)

The /var/qmail/control/rcpthosts file keeps a list of all the domains for which your server is to accept mail.

Add the new domain to it. Enter the new domain name in the same format as the existing entry.

It is a good idea to backup files before editing them.

Let me know if it works.
