    I think the <postmaster> should show an email address? (the email address of the server owner)?

    Is there a place where I can set this, and if so.. where :)?

    Thank you..

    Hmmm

    1)
    I do not have the "bounce.cf.default", so I created one named temporary_file with this in it (as test):

    Code:
    # The failure template is used for undeliverable mail.
    
               failure_template = <<EOF
               Charset: us-ascii
               From: MAILER-DAEMON (Mail Delivery System)
               Subject: Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender
               Postmaster-Subject: Postmaster Copy: Undelivered Mail
    
               This is the $mail_name program at host $myhostname.
    
               I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
               be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
    
               For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>
    
               If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
               delete your own text from the attached returned message.
    
                                              The $mail_name program
               EOF
    
    2)
    This is a no go.... I get this error:
    There is NO -b option !

    Falko..... HELP PLS! :)

    Please run
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate bounce.cf
    and post the output.

    Maybe something's different on your Postfix version. Instead of reading http://www.postfix.org/bounce.5.html, you can do
    Code:
    man 5 bounce

    Hmm I've setup the server with your 'perfect_setup_fedora_core_4'

    this is what I get after updating the db (updatedb)
    Code:
    [root@host ~]# updatedb
    [root@host ~]# locate bounce.cf
    [root@host ~]#
    Looks like I do not have a bounce.cf!

    Still.. It does send the
    re: man 5 bounce

    Code:
    [root@host postfix]# man 5 bounce
    No entry for bounce in section 5 of the manual
    Running 'man 8 bounce' does show me the readme :/


    I guess I need to read: http://www.postfix.org/bounce.8.html :)

    Hmmm I'm lost, or I'm missing something here.. There nothing that even looks close with the text
    in it..

    Maybe you must install something like postfix-devel on your system? What's the output of
    Code:
    yum search postfix
    ?

    Ok, there's no such package.
    You should download the Postfix source code from www.postfix.org and check if there's a bounce.cf.default in there.

    Okay falko, I'll do so, but the message that is send to users
    must be somewhere on my my server, as it does send it!
    Is there no way of 'hard' coding the <postmaster> to an emailaddress in some file?

    Okay.. Getting closer now..

    This is in the post-install file:
    I guess they are talking about the /etc/aliases file.

    In this I have 5 times postmaster.
    I'm about 99% sure that I need to change the mailer-daiemon postmaster one...
    falko.. can you confirm this?

    This has nothing to do with your bounce message problem. Did you search the Postfix sources for a bounce.cf.default file?
