I'm trying to bypass my spam filter and go directly to my e-mail server
to see if it could be causing issues.

In order to bypass my MX record, I like to point my mailman directly to
to e-mail server's ip address ( See below cust and paste.

Is this correct? Please advice.


myhostname = mailman.domain.com
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
##alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases, hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
##alias_database = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases
myorigin = /etc/mailname
mydestination = mailman.domain.com, localhost.domain.com, , localhost
relayhost =
mynetworks =
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all


# Default domain for email addresses of newly created MLs
# Default host for web interface of newly created MLs
DEFAULT_URL_HOST   = 'mailman.domain.com'
