I've already seen the posting at
and I've made sure that localhost.gonzo.banthewasp.com is listed in
/etc/postfix/local-host-names (I didn't have to add it - it was already there).
The original poster seems to have solved the problem thus:
I will delete this email and try to create another.
Trouble is, I'm not sure what he means by "delete".
Does this mean deleting it from a queue somewhere?
I don't know how to do that.
I guess there are two problems:
1. The message to admispconfig is being generated in the first place -
I don't know why or how to cure it.
2. The message to admispconfig can't be delivered. I don't know why that is either.
At the moment the only way I can stop these emails being generated
is "postfix stop" - which is not ideal in the long term.
