Default email mx issue

ok, I have one server that is a standalone webserver. it's mint7 and is for design projects and my blog, etc. it's FQDN is "tranquilpenguin.com"

I have another server that is for production sites, and it also hosts email for "@tranquilpenguin.com"

I have the mx record set up correctly.


If I cannot email via sendmail (php mail form) to @tranquilpenguin.com from the first server. How to I make the server understand that it doesn't host email for that domain and force it to use the mx address instead?

You must remove tranquilpenguin.com from the mydestination line in /etc/postfix/main.cf on the first server.
