The problem is this:

Code:
mh1:~# telnet mail.sa-tax.co.za 25
Trying 85.214.229.212...
Connected to mail.sa-tax.co.za.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 h1870666.stratoserver.net ESMTP Postfix (Debian/GNU)
quit
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.
mh1:~#
I suggest you change the contents of /etc/mailname to mail.sa-tax.co.za and restart Postfix.

You must change the contents of /etc/mailname.

my current mailname is h1870666.stratoserver.net and reverse pointers are on for this.
I just double checked the perfect debian squeeze server setup with apache2 for ispcfg3 and can't find anything about the mailname so what would I need to change it to so it works for all hosted domains?

If you want Postfix to identify itself as mail.sa-tax.co.za, you must set it to mail.sa-tax.co.za.

sorry, I must not have explained it properly. while using one of these online smtp checkers I got the warning: WARNING: The following mailservers don't have their host name in greetings:

My question was simply is that relevant on a box that uses ispcfg3 and hosts multiple domains? Or is it simply something to ignore?

If lots of the mails sent from your server are categorized as spam on the remote servers, you should change it. Otherwise you can ignore it.

Ok, but since I mentioned the server is using ispcfg and hosting multiple domains and email domains, what would I change the hostname to? which domain? So I guess this is the way it is with hosting multiple email domains
