    Already the email configuration, web, ftp and all is working fine, but i continued having problems with two domains.

    I have and, well, when send and email to [email protected] is recived in!! and dont see nothing bad.

    For this reason i cant recive email in domain until i did create again.

    This is message error: <[email protected]> (expanded from <[email protected]>): mail for loops back to myself

    What can be?

    Thank you very much.

    (sorry for my english)

    I guess you used the domain as server hostname as you installed the server. There are 2 solutions:

    1) Reconfigure postfix file to use another domain.

    or 2) Add the line:

    at the end of the file /etc/postfix/local-host-names and restart postfix.

    Hellow Till.

    My postfix has as myhostname = , then i should change this for recive emails in the accounts of domain?

    Do you mean that?

    No. In this case, use option 2)

    What is the output of the commands:

    hostname -f


    (The output of hostname and hostname -f should be the same).

    Within your change (if needed) myhostname = into the output of the command hostname -f

    Well, thing continued same. Whe i send email to is recived in

    I think that the server is saving the configuration and when i delete it follow there.

    After changing your file, did you restart postfix afterwards with the command /etc/init.d/ postfix restart

    This means that the domain points in dns still to your server either because it is listed in /etc/hosts or because the domain points to your local server in the dns server.

    so, make sure that the domain is not listsd in /etc/hosts and not in the ispconfig dns-manager and change the IP address to an external server in the authoritive dns server for
