My Dns is resolving to my IP address, and it works since I can receive
emails on differents accounts I created.
In my main.cf I my local network was setup like this: 127.0.0.0/8
I tryed this : 127.0.0/8 my public IP
(I'm not sure I'm supposed to do this). It's working and I can get my emails
trough outlook (I had setup my dovecot.conf with disable_plaintext_auth =
no" in your).
Could you tell me if it's safe ; I feel like I could become an openrelay
with this configuration.
