    Ok so I just figured out that my server is rejecting all my mail!
    I have the Ubuntu Perfect Server Setup for Hardy Heron.
    ISPConfig Version: 2.2.23

    These are the errors I get:
    Jun 23 05:32:25 feraserver postfix/smtpd[15392]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from[]: 554 5.7.1 <[email protected]>: Relay access denied; from=<[email protected]> to=<[email protected]> proto=ESMTP helo=<>
    I tried changing /etc/postfix/

    I added:
    virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable
    Changed this from ",, localhost.localdomain, localhost" to:
    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names

    This allowed the mail to come in but then bounced because mailbox was full. It was saying that the mailbox had 0bytes of space.

    Please help. We would even be willing to pay for services.

    This took me over 4 hours to figure out. The problem was that going through the perfect setup I simply copied over the postfix "" However, the following needed to be added at the end:

    mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names
    home_mailbox = Maildir/
    virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

    Also, the mail accounts that were getting mailbox full errors had to be deleted and created again through the ISPConfig control panel.

    This is usually added by the ISPConfig installer, so I guess you copied the from the tutorial after the ISPConfig installation?
