Falko HELP!!! LOL

Alright so i just made the changes in the /etc/postfix/main.cf what i did is as follows:

changed myhostname = server1.$mydomain
to
myhostname = mail.oneillpcs.com

also changed mydomain = example.com
to
mydomain = oneillpcs.com

(I used "mail." in stead of "server1." because server1 still did not allow messages to aol but using "mail." aol accepted my mail messages so that worked GREAT!

BUT i had to change it all back to server1.example.com because my server became as slow as my OLD commodore64 hahaha...it was working non stop and in my own personal mail box on the oneillpcs.com domain i kept getting the following message sent over and over about 300 per hour:

----[mail message being]----------
This is the Postfix program at host mail.oneillpcs.com.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can delete your own text from the attached returned message.

The Postfix program

<admispconfig@localhost.oneillpcs.com> (expanded from
<admispconfig@localhost>): mail for localhost.oneillpcs.com loops back to
myself
---[mail message end]--------

I'm getting these in my mail box (never got them before) about every 25seconds PLEASE HELP its slow and a ton of these same message filling up my mail.

How do i get that undeliverable message to stop happening? and my server still now runs REALLY REALLY slow unless i stop the postfix in the command prompt.

Please help! thanks!

Just append localhost.oneillpcs.com to the mydestination line in /etc/postfix/main.cf and restart Postfix.

This setting of mydestination wont work. If mydeatination is a path like: /etc/postfix/local-host-names, must open the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names and add the line:

localhost.oneillpcs.com

at the end of the file instead of appending it to mydestination in your main.cf file.

Have you restarted postfix after you added the line to the local-host-names file?

Does the mydestination line looks like this:

mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

and not with a "-" inside like you posted it in the forum?
