    Add the line:

    thor2.tlsystems.co.uk

    at the end of the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names and restart postfix.

    Hi til,

    Thanks for replying..
    I did the change, it did come back, but with a different error

    Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

    dave@myhairyarse.com

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 5.1.1 <dave@myhairyarse.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table (state 14).
