Hi everybody,
I'm fairly new to plan9 but I was trying to set up a 9front install on
a vultr server to be able to send mail front there.
For the configuration I copied rewrite.direct and replaced all
"YOURDOMAIN" with mine in rewrite, remotemail and smtpd.conf.
But when I try to send an email I get this error under /sys/log/smtp.fail

xxxx Feb 11 18:03:31 delivery '/net.alt/dns' does not exist (net!gmail.com)

At first I thought it was a DNS error but ndb/dnsquery resolves gmail
ip correctly.

Thanks in advance
Pablo

Yeah, mail configuration is more than just one config file. There are 
multiple sources for setting up a mail server with upas, see my blog, 
this mailing list (archive) and docs.9front.org. Configuring sending is 
easier than receiving.

Check your /mail/lib/remotemail file and your dns entries, and (in case 
of gmail) your spam folder there. I recommend using an online mail tester 
(the one with the boat) for spam detection and potential 
misconfiguration.

This error is discussed about just recently. I think it was something 
like, /net is first tested, and if that didn't succeed, /net.alt is used 
silently. If you don't use /net.alt it fails, of course. I think there 
was some solution for this error, but I'm not sure about that.

PS: I know this error well because I get it sometimes, but most of the 
time my sending mail works fine. In these rare cases I just sent the 
(archived) mail again.

It was vultr blocking ports by default. I didn't know I had to ask
them to open them for me.
Sorry about the spam
