  • Question

  • I've been seeing this type of email being discussed on the various WHS sites.  Just how do you send FROM and TO it?  Most of what I've been reading has been frustrated users on the verge of cutting their throats to see if that will work. ;-)

  • It doesn't exist, as far as I know. You don't have any ability to "manage" your vanity URL, just create it.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Then whats the point?

  • The point is to get remote access through the web. WHS is not meant to act as a mail server.

  • I agree setting up blahblah.homeserver.com is needed to set up remote access but this guy http://wiki.wegotserved.com/images/0/08/Axigen_11.JPG from his dialog box is saying you can send mail to gamer@xxxx.homeserver.com

    Didn't think that was possible.

    I believe this is what you're looking for
    http://wiki.wegotserved.com/index.php?title=Axigen_E-Mail_Server_on_Windows_Home_Server
     Although it's not a supported feature by Microsoft.  So I don't think
    anyone on this forum will help you if you run into problems.  You'll
    most likely have to sign up at the wegotserved forums and get help with
    it there.

    Hope this helps, and have a great day:)
    Patrick.

  • My only interest in it is when people claim to be able to have a bob@bob.homeserver.com email address when they don't own the domain and you can't send through it because emails on this domain do not exist.

    That's where I was going with it.

    If I were to venture a guess, it's because Microsoft doesn't block the
    MX Records for these domains.  So, the mail server probably registers
    them with your computer, or ties them into the NS records of your server.

    I'm not sure how it's done either, but I'd imagine that it's possible.
    In the end, I guess you'd have to ask at wegotserved about it.

    Have a great day:)
