Falko HELP!!! LOL Alright so i just made the changes in the /etc/postfix/main.cf what i did is as follows: changed myhostname = server1.$mydomain to myhostname = mail.oneillpcs.com also changed mydomain = example.com to mydomain = oneillpcs.com (I used "mail." in stead of "server1." because server1 still did not allow messages to aol but using "mail." aol accepted my mail messages so that worked GREAT! BUT i had to change it all back to server1.example.com because my server became as slow as my OLD commodore64 hahaha...it was working non stop and in my own personal mail box on the oneillpcs.com domain i kept getting the following message sent over and over about 300 per hour: ----[mail message being]---------- This is the Postfix program at host mail.oneillpcs.com. I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below. For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster> If you do so, please include this problem report. You can delete your own text from the attached returned message. The Postfix program <[email protected]> (expanded from <[email protected]>): mail for localhost.oneillpcs.com loops back to myself ---[mail message end]-------- I'm getting these in my mail box (never got them before) about every 25seconds PLEASE HELP its slow and a ton of these same message filling up my mail. How do i get that undeliverable message to stop happening? and my server still now runs REALLY REALLY slow unless i stop the postfix in the command prompt. Please help! thanks!
