    For some strange reason, the email seem to have stopped working. And when I check the /var/log/mail.log file I keep seeing this :-

    May 15 16:34:43 dc004 postfix/smtp[5848]: 1BC2A1DC0E6: to=<>, relay=none, delay=0, status=bounced (mail for loops back to myself)

    Any ideas?

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

    Many thanks for your prompt reply!

    There's already an entry of the domainname on that file. Specifically

    Have you updated your postfix and the installation routine has overridden your postfiy file?

    There must be a line like:

    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    in /etc/postfix/

    No I haven't updated postfix or a "apt-get dist-upgrade" for the last 2 weeks

    And yes these 2 lines are still in my

    #mydestination =,, localhost
    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    Can you post the exact error message here (and don't replace the domain name).
