lowest numbered MX record points to local hostLast Modified: Feb 11, 2013, 3:32 pm
If you find the follow message in your exim mainlog or a bounce message:

lowest numbered MX record points to local host

that means the MX records resolve to your own server, but the domain/host in question is not present in the file:

/etc/virtual/domains


1) If the domain should be external, change the MX record to be external.

2) If the domain should be internal, add the domain to the /etc/virtual/domains file.. but of course, ensure it was properly added into DA as a domain.  Eg, the following should also exist locally:

/etc/virtual/domain.com/
