Unhappy Mailbox looks to be catch all ???

Hi,

I have following problem: I have two mailboxes on domain A. I have also a domain B installed in ISPConfig but setup with remote Mail server and no mailbox setup in it.

When I send an email from domain A to mailbox on domain B, it should go outside my server to be delivered to MX server of domain B. Instead email appears in an other mailbox of domain A !!!

I already noticed in past that that special mailbox on domain A gets also error messages from mailserver unless it doesn't have any catch all or special settings !

An idea what happens ? I currently run version Version: 2.2.6 of ISPConfig.

Thanks in advance

Vince

Cool

Thanks Till for the link. Unhappy $mydomain doesn't exist in my /etc/postfix/main.cf file ! Should I add it with a fake domain ?

Thanks

Vince

Yes, please add the mydomain variable and also check the myhostname variable.

So I added mydomain with a domain name corresponding to domain of server, but I still receive emails in an other domain mailbox when not corresponding to a local domain

myhostname variable doesn't exist ! Should I create it ?

I did a postfix reload after modification for info

Thanks

Vince

And you are sure that there exists no website or co-domain in ispconfig that is identical to the domain you used for mydomain or myhostname in the postfix main.cf file?

For sure it exists as domain I putted in mydomain is main domain of server and is managed for email and web in ispconfig ! Should I put a fake domain name for mydomain ?

For myhostname, what should I indicate ? fake hostname also ?

Thanks

Please use a domain/hostname in mydomain/myhostname that points to your server, but isn't used for any web site/email account. You could buy a "technical" domain that you use solely for naming your servers.
