What does your mydestination line look like in /etc/postfix/main.cf? It should be
Code:
mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
You're using Courier as POP3 server which means you must enable Maildir in ISPConfig (if you use ISPConfig).

Unhappy no change still same errors

mydestination line is as you said it should be

when sending fro domain not hosted on the server I get a message stating mail loops back to myself for ehs.org.za domain

Am I correct in assuming that for each domain I set up the server automatically creates pop3.domain.lll and smtp.domain.lll or do you still have to create these in the co-domains area

Yes I am using ISP config and maildir is ticked on

Thanks for having the patience to help me through this

Sorry was a bit hasty when sending from domain not hosted on my server *@ehs.org.za I get the following

<info@ehs.org.za>:
196.33.247.203 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 <info@ehs.org.za>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
Giving up on 196.33.247.203.

but when I look in my virtusertable the address wasn't there so I added it and tried again still same error.

No, you have to create these subdomains on the Co-Domains tab (and of course, you must create DNS records for these subdomains).

Did you create the email address info@ehs.org.za in ISPConfig?

If you want to add the email address manually instead of with ISPConfig, then you must run
Code:
postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
after you've added the email address to /etc/postfix/virtusertable and then restart Postfix.

Thumbs up Think I've got it

Okay

1: Deleted all users all in all domains within ISPConfig
2: vi /etc/postfix/virtusertable
3: Removed all the Junk that I obviously added with all trying
4: did the same with /etc/postfix/local-host-names
5: Recreated Domains
6: Recreated Users
7: Looked at files "/etc/postfix/virtusertable" & "/""/local-host- names"
They looked more like the ones posted online.

Tried sending to external: Success

Tried sending from external domain to local domains:

All now give same error:

This is the Postfix program at host server1.webpapagedirect.co.za.

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

<web2_info@server1.webpapagedirect.co.za> (expanded from <info@ehs.org.za>):
Host or domain name not found. Name service error for
name=server1.webpapagedirect.co.za type=AAAA: Host not found

************************************************** ********
This comes back to what you pointed out.

But I'm sorry to say there that I'm lost with their application form.Would it be possible to have a look?(http://co.za/coza_reg.txt) cause their not answering e-mail and not returning calls.

Will try phone tomorrow, but tomorrow public holiday.

Have you created an A-Record server1.webpapagedirect.co.za in the DNS-Server for webpapagedirect.co.za?

Otherwise you can try to add it to the hosts file on your server.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I registerred webpapagedirect.co.za at zoneedit so not to sure why I have to tel coza that they have to add server1.webpapagedirect.co.za to the DNS and I cant get throught to them. Their form is confusing and they're not the most helpfull.
