How do I set up Qmail to send messages via the outgoing filter?

In this article we describe how you can set up the outgoing filter on your Qmail server in a few steps. By following the steps below, you will redirect all outgoing messages from your server to our filtering cloud.


Make sure that the IP address of your mail server has been created as outgoing user in EuropeanMX. For instructions on how to set up an outgoing user, please refer to our FAQ article "How do I set up an outgoing user?".


Make sure that the correct limits are set for the outgoing user in EuropeanMX. 


Change the configuration on your mail server with the following command:

echo "" > /var/qmail/control/smtproutes

Dieser Befehl überschreibt die existierenden SMTP-Routen auf Ihrem Server. Wenn Sie dies nicht wünschen, dann können Sie das einzelne Zeichen > durch >> ersetzen.
