Problem when restricting the use of mail rules to forward messages to external domains

Hello

We wanted to use this new feature shipped with FP9 but without success. Did anyone try this out?

I enabled "Deny rules mail forwarding to external internet domains:" and put a list of domains in the field "Allow forwarding to these additional internet domains:" in the following form:

*.acme.com

*. abc.com

(Commas or semicolons are not accepted.)

Result => No message is being forwarded by rules, even those messages intended for allowed domains.

How can domains or even better mail addresses be excluded from this restriction?

 

Thank you!

We are at FP9 IF1

I've already installed IF1 because we had the issue with SMTP. Do you mean this could have introduced a new regression?

Reverting to FP8 isn't a solution when we want to use this new feature,

Without wildcard ?

I thought the right syntax would be :

acme.com

abc.com

Did you try ?

Removed wildcard

Removing the wildcard solved the problem.

The documentation has an example of *.renovations.com that confused me.

Thank you Fabrice!
