Before asking for help, I’d like to say: I’m pretty happy with Yunohost. It’s never been so easy to configure my own server.
My YunoHost server
Hardware: Home laptop
YunoHost version: 4.0.3
I have access to my server : Through SSH | through the webadmin | direct access via keyboard / screen
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : yes
If yes, please explain: I’m in Brazil, so there’s little chance I’m able to get port 25 unblocked
Description of my issue
I managed to get Yunohost running yesterday and installed Mastodon and WriteFreely. However, since I’m in Brazil and port 25 has been closed for home networks since the late 2000s, I will not be able to host the mail server.
Is it possible for me to setup a different mail server as my yunohost email? I wouldn’t need the email server except that mastodon requires an imap server in order to send users mail and I also need to receive mail if I want to receive sign-up requests from new users, for instance.
I’ve read a bunch of other threads1, but I must confess I’m a bit lost and I don’t know if that’s exactly what I want.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that I’m using my own domain, not a yuno domain.
For one of my domain, I wanted to keep my mails out of my yunohost server. (Because it’s one of my principal mail, I need it and I need people receive my mails from it…)
When I installed the yunohost server with this domain, I didn’t change the DNS for the mail. So nothing change, OVH is still handling my mails.
But Yunohost mails are sended (but they’ll finish in spam almost everywhere).
I don’t know if this answer to your question…
Maybe this is what I want. Can you give more details on your configurations?
Thanks in advance.
I keep original DNS records concerning mailing.
IN NS ns106.ovh.net.
IN NS dns106.ovh.net.
IN MX 100 mxb.ovh.net.
IN MX 1 mx1.ovh.net.
IN MX 5 mx2.ovh.net.
600 IN TXT "v=spf1 include:mx.ovh.com ~all"
mail IN CNAME ns0.ovh.net.
ox IN CNAME ox.ovh.net.
pop3 IN CNAME ns0.ovh.net.
smtp IN CNAME ns0.ovh.net.
I change the others.
Are you self-hosting or paying for a hosting service?
My mails are hosted by OVH. I did self-hosting for mails but my mails finished in spam too often… (Not self-hosting fault but Gmail and microsoft fault!)
Do you remember how you configured GMail as you smtp server? I don’t mind too much about my mails ending up in the spam folder, I just need a working smtp.
So, I just followed the tutorial I have linked with the extra step of allowing unsafe applications in Google and it worked! I can even receive mail!
Thanks for the help!
