Sorry to drag you all into another “mail server 101”!
My YunoHost server
Hardware: Second hand HP Pro 3330 4gb RAM
YunoHost version: 3.6.4
I have access to my server : SSH, webadmin, directly via screen
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : No. Nothing beyond the defaults / following standard documentation.
Description of my issue
I have a
foo.com domain registered with Gandi DNS. I’ve setup Yunohost to be accessible on the
members.foo.com sub-domain (A record). I intend to use
foo.com for the main website (a _ynh package of some sort).
I would like to have users have their email addresses on
email@example.com and not
firstname.lastname@example.org. However, my main domain for Yunohost (used at post-install time) is the
So, I am wondering, can I choose
members.foo.com at post-install time, as I have done and then still configure my DNS records to use
foo.com as the main email domain? What should I keep in mind for this?
I was unsure because
yunohost domain dns-conf foo.com and
yunohost domain dns-conf members.foo.com are giving me very different configurations:
members.foo.com gives me all the DKIM/DMARC/SPF stuff.
The https://yunohost.org/#/dns_config documentation is helpful! But: “For specific needs or specific setups, and if you know what you’re doing, you might want or have to tweak these or add additional ones (e.g. to handle subdomains).” can hopefully be expanded. I think it’s a pretty standard need to allow for a “mail.foo.com” or whatever when setting up a Yunohost. I will try to do this as my understanding improves.
