I know. I'm in a pinch.
'If you want to use an IP address it would normally be fred@??? - the IP address goes in square brackets.' My MTA (gmail) rejects the square-bracketed form; without them the message gets to the target server.
'You can configure exim to accept mail sent to a particular IP address and translate that to a domain but I can only guess you don't really want to go through that trouble.' Sounds good to me.
'IP addresses are not domain names. Yes. I meant to say that it's a valid address.
'They can not have MX records.' Why not? If an SMTP server at the address handles mail...
'If there is any domain name that has an A record pointing to 123.456.789.012, it is likely to work much more often than using the IP address directly, even if it has no MX record.' There is an A record, but there's also an MX record that points to our mail server, a Microsoft Outlook thing: mail sent to it won't arrive at the target server.
'Is fred a local user?' Yes. He gets messages (local) every day.
'It would be a matter of setting up 123.456.789.012 as a local domain.' I added it to 'local_domains'.
Quoth Jasen Betts: 'You probably need to configure [123.456.789.012] as one of the domains that exim accepts for. In host_accept_relay ?
'you may need to enable IP literal domains too.' Does local_domains_include_host_literals do this?
