    I saw these error messages in the mail.log:

    They are sent every 5 minutes, so it could be munin is trying to send messages.

    This is AFTER I replaced postfix with msmtp.

    Searching for "127.0.0.2" returned this:
    Code:
    $ grep -r -l "127.0.0.2" /etc/*
    grep: /etc/blkid.tab: No such file or directory
    /etc/network/interfaces
    Just in case it helps, here is the syslog:

    Seems as if you run some kind of sndmail, and not postfix, and the senmail server you installed is not able to resolve Ip 127.0.0.2.

    I agree. This is why I made a text search for "127.0.0.2" (and found nothing).
    Code:
    $ grep -r -l "127.0.0.2" /etc/*
    grep: /etc/blkid.tab: No such file or directory
    /etc/network/interfaces
    Any idea where this could be located?

    I must be blind. It is in /etc/network/interfaces:

    Code:
    # Auto generated venet0 interface
    auto venet0
    iface venet0 inet manual
    	up ifconfig venet0 up
    	up ifconfig venet0 [B]127.0.0.2[/B]
    	up route add default dev venet0
    	down route del default dev venet0
    	down ifconfig venet0 down
    Is this something that ispconfig does?

    No. Thats from openvz. Just add a line for this ip to the /etc/hosts file of your server.

    This is the etc/hosts file:
    Code:
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    # Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
    192.210.214.129 server1.surf-anonymous.info  server1
    ::1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    Where do I add the 127.0.0.2 ?

    I think this file is also auto generated.

    I am googling all morning on this issue.

    You are more experienced. If you could tell me what is the meaning of this "secondary internal" IP address 127.0.0.2 (compared to 127.0.0.1), please tell me. Is it because of the second domain? What does this do?

    I tried this and it worked. Thanks!
    Code:
    [B]127.0.0.2 server1[/B]
    127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
    # Auto-generated hostname. Please do not remove this comment.
    192.210.214.129 server1.surf-anonymous.info  server1
    ::1 localhost.localdomain localhost
