mail bounced back - Need Fully Qualified Address

Hi All, One of my user, set the forward email to from "test.testagain@localdomain", via usermin


Login->Account Information->Account Functions->Filter and Forward Mail-> Forward to


Remote mail server bounced back due to invalid full qualified address. I believe should be related with "test.testagain@localdomain". How do i solve it? Thanks KH

Well, you'll want to have a name other than "localdomain" for outgoing emails.

I do see it looks like you attempted to do that in the screenshot you offered above -- so we can either try to fix the address rewriting, or tackle this another way, I'm not sure which yet :-)

Can you do the following, and paste in the output --

  1. Run the "hostname" command

  2. cat /etc/hosts

  3. grep myhostname /etc/postfix/

  4. grep myorigin /etc/postfix/

And we'll figure out the next steps from there... thanks!

Hi all, FYI, i'm running under EC2 (Cloud Computing) with Virtual host

Sending/receving via usermin, auto reply - no prb only forward - has problem.

Hope to hear from you all. Great thanks.

Virtualmin version :3.64.gpl GPL

cat hostname : domU-12-31-38-00-2D-84

cat /etc/hosts: localhost localhost.localdomain

grep myhostname /etc/postfix/ Not set, so i'm using default
