email seem to have stop working
 
Hi,

For some strange reason, the email seem to have stopped working. And when I check the /var/log/mail.log file I keep seeing this :-

Code:

May 15 16:34:43 dc004 postfix/smtp[5848]: 1BC2A1DC0E6: to=<firstname.lastname@domainname.com>, relay=none, delay=0, status=bounced (mail for domainname.com loops back to myself)


Any ideas?

Add domainname.com at the end of the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names and restart postfix.

Hi Till,

Many thanks for your prompt reply!

There's already an entry of the domainname on that file. Specifically
www.domainname.com
mail.domainname.com
domainname.com

Have you updated your postfix and the installation routine has overridden your postfiy main.cf file?

There must be a line like:

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

in /etc/postfix/main.cf

No I haven't updated postfix or a "apt-get dist-upgrade" for the last 2 weeks

And yes these 2 lines are still in my main.cf

Code:

#mydestination = mail.domainname.com, localhost.domainname.com, localhost
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

Restart Postfix and try again.

I've just restarted it. It's still the same :-(
I'll pm you the link to mail logs now

Thanks

Can you post the exact error message here (and don't replace the domain name).

May 19 02:23:35 localhost postfix/smtp[7665]: C65D02CC0DE: to=<cdr8_clarence@dc004.asuk.net>, orig_to=<clarence@bidmail.co.uk>, relay=none, delay=0, status=bounced (mail for dc004.asuk.net loops back to myself)
