    Hi

    Code:
    This is the Postfix program at host mm1mdp.co.uk.

    Apr 17 22:15:25 palmeac1 postfix/postfix-script: stopping the Postfix mail system
    
    I have NO idea why an email is being generated to [email protected], or why that should be directed to [email protected].

    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks in advance

    Please add localhost.co.uk at the end of /etc/postfix/local-host-names and restart Postfix.

    The mails for [email protected] contain the message size of each incoming message; they are used to generate ISPConfig traffic statistics.
    Please don't redirect or block these emails!

    No, it's not set in the control panel; [email protected] is hard-coded, and Median's server expands it to [email protected] - nothing unusual here. :)

    Thanks Falko

    Thats fixed the loop, but the 2 accounts on that domain are now very slow to respond when downloading email using Outlook.

    Have restarted server so we'll see what happens.

    Thanks again - appreciate the help

    Hi Falko

    Nothing worth noting in the mail log but it sorted itself out after a few hours.

    Thanks again
