    I can't find localhost.localdomain.com ANYWHERE. I checked hosts, local-host-names. all my zones. I just don't know. Could this be because I switched from mbox to Maildir? I know. I'm grasping at straws here but I don't know what else to do...

    You could try this:
    Code:
    cd /
    grep -R "localhost.localdomain.com" *
    Do you get any results?

    nothing. It tries to search the fdd, the cdrom, and usb1.1 and usb2.0 and then stops and does nothing. I let it run for 40+ hours.

    Please remove the CD from the drice and disconnect all external drives. Then try again.

    uh, there was no CD in the drive and there are no external drives connected. I do have my hdd on a PCI SATA card. Does that make a difference?

    I'd be interested to know what OS everyone who's had this problem is running. I'm running FC5. Could it be OS specific?

    No, it's just some kind of misconfiguration.

    Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender

    Having similar problem. Getting houndreds of emails already..
    In my case it tries to send email to such address: [email protected]
    where "mydomain.com" is the main domain of the server.

    and the message: "mail for
    localhost.localdomain.mydomain.com loops back to myself"

    OS - Fedora 7, latest ISPConfig...

    local-host-names:

    Code:
    localhost
    s1.mydomain.com
    localhost.s1.mydomain.com
    localhost.mydomain.com
    localhost.localdomain
    www.mydomain.com
    mydomain.com

    Found answer here, sorry:
    http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showpost.php?p=76837&postcount=13

    but still, why this problem exists at all...

    Because you didn't set up the hostname exactly as shown in the "Perfect Server" tutorial for Fedora 7. But if it's working now it's ok.

    Possible fix for localhost.localdomain.com error

    I added localhost.localdomain.com to /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    then restarted postfix. Now when I receive email i dont get the following emails put in my inbox
    Code:
    <[email protected]>: delivery temporarily suspended:
    connect to localhost.localdomain.com[66.172.91.184]: Connection refused
    
    nor do I get these added to my mailq

    Code:
    A6A53221013D 743 Thu May 31 14:05:29 web1_*****@drskidmore.com
    (connect to localhost.localdomain.com[66.172.91.184]: Connection refused)
    [email protected]
    Everything seems to be working correctly now. I'm not sure if this the best way to do this, but now I dont get hundreds of the error emails.
