Email bouncing
 
I set up a server using the FC4 Perfect Setup guide. Once I was finished I can send email, but once I replied I recieved this message:

And I checked the DNS entry to make sure the MX record was set up properly:
Code:

(snip)

  MX      10 mail.antrat.com.

antrat.com.      A        68.110.129.76
www      A      68.110.129.76
mail      A      68.110.129.76

Any idea why this is happening?

Add the line:

wsip-68-110-129-76.ga.at.cox.net

at the end of the file:

/etc/postfix/local-host-names

Then restart postfix.

Great that worked.... but now something else is happening. As soon as I started postfix I recieved an "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender" email every second. The attatched file was this:

Any idea what this is? I had to stop Postfix to stop the emails.

till 8th September 2005 16:25

Please add:

localhost.ga.at.cox.net

to the local-host-names file too and restart postfix.

ProTrooper 8th September 2005 16:32

Did that but it didn't help. Checked the log. No Problems, just a lot of these messages:
Code:

postfix/pickup[4109]: 801086082C: uid=10005 from=<james>
postfix/cleanup[4111]: 801086082C: message-id=<20050908142820.801086082C@wsip-68-110-129-76.ga.at.cox.net>

postfix/qmgr[4110]: 801086082C: removed

I will delete this email and try to create another. I will let you know what happens.

ProTrooper 8th September 2005 16:54
