    Default [SOLVED] changing postfix config

    hello ther e,

    i got some messages in the daily status indicating that mail is bouncing to myself . This happens every 2 minutes.

    All mails to external adresses go out , all mails are received .
    So basic dns and mail config is oke. I suppose that zimbra is internally sending or forwarding some mails and that there is something i should add to the postfix config .

    It is a single server install . Hostname in postfix is mail.domain and mydestination is localhost. I was planning on adding domain , mail.domain and localhost.domain to mydestination to check what would happen. Unfortunately the postfix config is overwritten every time i restart. I should apperently add some config to zmmta.cf but i don't know how .

    Anybody any ideas about this change or the error message in itself ??
    Remember : everything is working fine !! Except for a few error messages

    this is the error message in the daily stats file :
    2009-01-16 00:00:03 bounced (mail for mail.xxxxxx loops back to myself)
    2009-01-16 00:02:03 bounced (mail for mail.xxxxxx loops back to myself)
    2009-01-16 00:04:03 bounced (mail for mail.xxxxxxx loops back to myself)
    2009-01-16 00:06:02 bounced (mail for mail.xxxxxxx loops back to myself)
    2009-01-16 00:08:02 bounced (mail for mail.xxxxxxxx loops back to myself)

    i replaced the real domein name by xxxxx

    Thx

    Default

    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov gacf zimbraMtaMyDestination
    you will probably find that this only includes localhost, so to add your mail server you can do
    Code:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov mcf zimbraMtaMyDestination 'localhost, additional.domain.com'
    /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmmtaconfig mta
    postconf mydestination
    should now include your additional domain.

    Default solved

    it is appaerently the zmstatuslog program that is executed every 2 minutes. It wants to send mail to [email]zimbra@mail
    When you only have localhost in your postfix config for mydestination, you have the bounce messages

    solved
    thx
