    I have postfix installed on a standalone centos 5.6 box which hosts

    the email for SHOULD be delivered to my exchange server - which is setup properly and if you sent an email from the outside world to
    if would come to my exchange server.

    My problem is that this server does not want to deliver email it generates for to anything other than itself.

    On my centos 5.6 box I have postfix running and have aliased 'root' to
    [email protected] ( runs on this server)

    We have one email address configured on exchange for the site and
    it's: [email protected]

    In Postfix there is also a support mailbox that is aliases to root (by

    postfix delivers email to all other domains properly but it think it should be delivering all email from addressed to to itself.

    when an email is generated on the site that supposed to be sent to
    [email protected] I get this error in maillog

    Mar 21 14:23:21 mysite postfix/local[3999]: 772443260005:
    to=<[email protected]>, orig_to=<[email protected]>, relay=local,
    delay=0.19, delays=0.09/0/0/0.1, dsn=5.4.6, status=bounced (alias
    database loop for root)

    How do I get postfix to recognize that email for is not
    being hosted on this server and to deliver it outside the server
    through smtp?
