Only admin can send email to Alfresco

I set up a test user 'test' with email myaccount@mymaildomain.com. 'test' is in the EMAIL_CONTRIBUTORS group and also has writing access to the folder the mail is sent to.

 

EMAIL_CONTRIBUTORS

Site members

Anyway, when I send an email from the above account, mail delivery fails: "554 The user 'anonymous' is not in the email contributor group". Somehow Alfresco doesn't recognize the email address as one of a known user. When I assign the same address  myaccount@mymaildomain.com to user admin, everything works fine.

 

alfresco-global.properties looks like this:

### INBOUND SMTP ###
email.inbound.unknownUser=anonymous
email.inbound.enabled=true
email.server.enabled=true
email.server.port=25
email.server.domain=myalfrescodomain.com

Any ideas? It seems to work for everybody else...
