Summary0000595: relayhost should be encapsulated in square brackets
DescriptionWhen saving a relay SMTP server for sending e-mails, OMV saves the relayhost in /etc/postfix/main.cf without square brackets. This means that postfix will do an MX DNS lookup on the given hostname then use that as a relay

This is probably not what most users have in mind when putting a relay server in the OMV web interface and can cause much confusion (it certainly did with me)

If you enter the relayhost with [] it will use the A record for that hostname instead of the MX record

Using [hostname] in OMV web interface works too - so if you do not want to change main.cf output by default, it may be worth at least adding this disclaimer to the help text below mail server field
