email question


Hi Can you guys explain me why let's say gmail accepts emails from my local postfix server with domain that isn't even registered and it's run on virtual machine ?It does normal MX lookup and email is sent to my official gmail mailbox and gmail accepts it . Why ? I always thought these emails get rejected due to unknown /unregistered domain ?

What distro is in the VM?

Perhaps it includes the requisite SSL certificates.

You might also look in /var/log/maillog (or whatever the SystemD equivalent may be, depending on the installation and configuration) for hints.
