    I recently changed my nameservers, but when I run a diagnostic tool on my mail server, it still shows my old hostname and no mail is being delivered.

    I am running FC7 and Postfix. I've look in the main.cf file and I don't see anything and I believe I have change my hostname elsewhere that I could find so I'm not sure what else needs changed.

    Are your name servers returning the correct MX record ?

    When I do a MX lookup, it's returning the correct hostname, but when I run a test on the server to check for open relays and such, it's returning my old hostname.

    Because of this, I believe it's why I am not receiving any e-mail.

    Any errors in your mail log? What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf? What are the outputs of
    Code:
    hostname
    and
    Code:
    hostname -f
    ?

    Well actually I found a line I had skipped over before it /etc/postfix/main.cf that had my old hostname. I changed it and that worked.

    Now, I seem to be getting these messages now:

        553 hostname.domain.net does not exist (in reply to MAIL FROM
        command)
    Is this happening because of reverse DNS issues?
