Default mail not arriving to postfix


I had a simple setup using postfixadmin, postfix and dovecot on a Fedora 9 box which I wanted to add spam and virus checking to (don't think it did it to begin with).

I followed the tutorial, Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora 8) and by the end of it my mail was not being received.

Say my server is called server.domain.tld, and I had another domain pointing to it, otherdomain.tld . Previously, test@otherdomain.tld worked fine and I could send mail via my mail client no problem and receive them too. Now, I can send mail but there is no sign in the logs of a mail being received.

However, if I mail root@server.domain.tld, I do see a mail receipt on the logs. I haven't touched DNS settings etc. any ideas where to start troubleshooting?

Thanks for the reply falco, didn't know that command!

I didn't touch the DNS records, however they do go through an mxav1 first which I think my ISP scans for viruses before routing it to my server. I bet that's the culprit so I'll chase that up first.
