WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'd like to use Google Apps for user mailboxes but still use Webfaction's mail servers for site admin and mail outs. Is this possible on a single domain? Or would I need to create a subdomain to achieve this.

e.g. Ideally id like: user@domain.com -> Google Apps enquiries@domain.com -> Webfaction newsletters@domain.com -> Webfaction

Note that "enquiries" and "newsletters" wouldn't necessarily need to receive mail, but would have to send mail via a django app.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Generally, you cannot configure different mail servers to receive mail for different email addresses at the same domain name. However, if your goal is just to send mail via a django app, this shouldn't be a problem. The "From" address for an email message is set in its headers, and can be set to any value, even if mail for that domain isn't hosted at the same server.

So, simply set the "From" header in your message to newsletters@domain.com/enquiries@domain.com in your django app.
