Anything related to this in your mail log? Does the MX record of the recipient domain point to your server?

The MX definitely points to a FQDN which resolves to the IP y.y.y.y ...

Code:

Just a thought, should the Postfix server name be different than the ISPC server name? I just noticed that it _looks_ as though the problem occurrs when Postfix is attempting to relay from admin@mydom.dom to mydom.dom-admin@myserver.mydom.dom. And yes, the domain is in fact the same in both cases. Let me try to make it more clear, if possible, it's confusing since I'm not using the actual name of my server...

I want to use, let's pretend, "hermes.heftigrat.net" as the server name mail will appear to originate from (postfix config). I set the ISPC server name as hermes as well. I also want to create email accounts at heftigrat.net, so I have "admin@heftigrat.net". The username I create for POP3 and FTP access is "heftigrat.net-admin" because I don't like the "webX_user" format at all. Is this causing me a problem at all? Should I set the ISPC server name as something else? Thanks!

Please put myserver.mydom.dom at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names (below the line where it says that you're allowed to make manual entries) and restart Postfix:
Code:
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

Thanks it worked!!! (of course) But what's with the "localhost.myserver.mydom.dom.localdomain"? Isn't that redundant and wouldn't it result in "myserver.myserver.mydom.dom.mydom.dom"? Here's my current "/etc/postfix/local-host-names":

Code:
###################################
#
# ISPConfig local-host-names Configuration File
#         Version 1.0
#
###################################
localhost
myserver.mydom.dom.localdomain
localhost.myserver.mydom.dom.localdomain
localhost.mydom.dom.localdomain
www.mydom.dom
www.mydom.net
mydom.dom
mydom.net

ISPConfig tries to put all possible localhost combinations into that file in order to cover all scenarios. It doesn't hurt, so I'd leave the file as it is.
