Default Postfix DNS lookup issues

Hi All,

We are having trouble sending e-mail to an the external domain soarchrist.com. They have set up some dummy MX records to cut down on spam and this is causing our server to think that the domain is local and we are getting the following error:

mail for soarchrist.com loops back to myself

the mx records are:

nomail - priorty 5
mail.soarchrist.com - priorty 10
nomail - priorty 15

So our server is looking up nomail and treating it as nomail.ourdomain.com and giving us the loop back error. How do we configure postfix to prevent this?

It seems they don't want any emails...

You can try to set up a Postfix transport and forward all mails for that domain to mail.soarchrist.com. Take a look at
man 5 transport
