    thanks for reply. Below is e-mail, that is not my domain, or e-mail on my domains. How can he be "sender"?

    Host/Domain Summary: Messages Received (top 5)
    msg cnt bytes host/domain

    You do not say what log or what kind of report you are looking at, but maybe it is [email protected] sending mail to some e-mail box on your server? If you want to see contents of that message, read mail.log to see where that message was delivered. Or if it still in mail queue, postqueue can show you the message given the mail ID.
    The mail.log would also show you where the message came from and where it went.

    I'm sure Taleman is right. It's an external account sending mail to you
