    I was following this guide & noticed that during the section I was to modify my /etc/postfix/main.cf file, do I not need to add a mydomain = mydomain.tld?

    For example:

    Code:
    # Domain settings
    myhostname = mail.mydomain.tld
    [B][COLOR="Red"]mydomain = mydomain.tld[/COLOR][/B]
    myorigin = mydomain.tld
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
    The guide tells you to reference $mydomain parameter under the "mydestination =" section however we are never instructed to enter this parameter according to the link above. Should we add the "mydomain =" parameter or is it not necessary and only clutter?

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    postconf -d | grep mydomain
    and
    Code:
    postconf -n | grep mydomain
    ?

    Code:
    [root@mail ~]# postconf -d | grep -i "mydomain"
    append_dot_mydomain = yes
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
    mydomain = localdomain
    
    [root@mail ~]# postconf -n | grep -i "mydomain"
    append_dot_mydomain = no
    mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost

    The default setting currently is mydomain = localdomain. If you want to change it, run
    Code:
    postconf -e 'mydomain = mydomain.tld'
    and restart Postfix.
