Default MailSize Loop?

So... I seem to keep having this problem. I send a test email to myself ('user@domain.com')... This is not a user setup/controlled through ISPConfig (i.e. 'web3_user@domain.com') because I want to keep my sysadmin accounts outside of the ISPConfig thang.

The problem is an email loop keeps starting... the message is the "Mailsize" email originally to 'ispconfig@localhost' ... the subject is "Mailsize: username" and the body appears to be the size of the message that was sent. But it just loops and keeps sending until I kill postfix.

Any help would be lovely... I'm sure that this is some minor configuration. I have the ispconfig@localhost pointing to this same user in /etc/aliases... but I don't see why it is looping resending this message over and over.

Plus... why is there a "Mailsize" email anyways???

thanks.

What's the exact error message?

Don't redirect the emails to admispconfig to another user! These emails are necessary for the email traffic statistics in ISPconfig!

Default oooooohhhhhhh

yeah... that would make sense.... admispconfig actually forwards to root, and root forwards to my sysadmin user. I can't say whether I added the "admispconfig: root" or if it was there.... hmm.

Thank you... the "Mailsize" emails make so much more sense now! I'll play around a bit.

Default mail loop

I am having the same problem. How and where do I check if mail to admispconfig@localhost is being forwarded to another user?

That depends on where you added the forward. If you not added the forward yourself on the shell, i guess you do not have the problem discussed in this thread.

Did you get mails with a number inside or did you get an error message in your maillog stating "mail loops back to myself"?

I got hundreds of mails with numbers in them within half a minute, i.e. before I made changes in main.cf and reloaded postfix. The thing is, I want to set up an always_bcc account. If I add that to main.cf and send a test mail, the mail gets sent and then immediately after that messages are sent non-stop to the bcc account from the ispconfig@localhost account with what I assume to be mail sizes in them.

Here is a bit of the log information. I am new to this whole forum thing so forgive me if I am not doing it the right way.

What exactly did you add in main.cf ?
