Default Infinite bounce loop

About 5 times a second, a new message is generated:

be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

I've already seen the posting at
http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/arc...php/t-512.html
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.

Default Panic over

Putting

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

into /etc/postfix/main.cf did the trick.
No more loopy loop stuff.
