I have server A hosting my main site, and I have server B which is supposed to be my mail server. I was using a 3rd Party mail service but they have chosen not to provide to us anymore.

So I have server A, mysite.com, and server B mysite.net. Server A is a VPS running MyBB which uses PHP to send emails via SMTP. I am trying to configure direct admin to be the SMTP mail server, and also sign the emails, yet the emails need to show that they originate from no-reply@mysite.com, even though they are being processed on mysite.net. The 2 domains are identical except for the .com/.net part, but I am unable to get my head around how to do it.

My current (flawed) setup, SERVER B, centos 7 new install DA, add the main domain, mysite.net, add my no-repy email, and use the SMTP information to start using that to send emails.


The difficulties I am facing right now are:
1.) DA is forcing me to 200 emails a say on accounts, and I cannot change it past that. It's my own VPS, my host says its okay. Is there a config I am missing or something my host needs to change ?

2.) Google says the DKIM and SPF are failing. Is there a better way.

I am willing to hire someone to handle this for me if possible

Ok I have managed to raise the limits, seemed like a simple fix, a DOH moment.

The issues with smart host relays are over my head though
