Re: postfix: can't configure $myhost, $mydomain


Thanks for the suggestion, but it doesn't appear to have any effect
after restarting postfix:

Jan  8 14:27:57 localhost postfix/smtp[303]: 034CCD3386:
to=<cb lim nl>, relay=smtp.wanadoo.nl[]:25, delay=1.5,
delays=0.57/0/0.78/0.15, dsn=4.0.0, status=SOFTBOUNCE (host
smtp.wanadoo.nl[] said: 553
<colin localhost localdomain>: Sender address rejected: Domain not
found (in reply to RCPT TO command))


2 questions:

Are these questions for me? If so:

- How is the mail injected into the system? Via mail/sendmail (command
line) or directly via SMTP (good ol' 25/tcp)

Up until the switch, mail from Thunderbird/kmal was sent via local
postfix. Now I have tried sending mail directly to the ISP's SMTP
server or via postfix locally using the latter's "relayhost"
parameter. Both seem to work ok.

However, I also have a bunch of scripts that send system mail which
are now broken, and this is my main focus.

- What does postconf -n say?

$ postconf -n
command_directory = /usr/sbin
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
html_directory = no
inet_interfaces = all
mail_owner = postfix
mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq.postfix
manpage_directory = /usr/share/man
masquerade_domains = |ariel.lim.nl
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost
mydomain = lim.nl
myhostname = ariel.lim.nl
myorigin = $mydomain
newaliases_path = /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.3/README_FILES
relayhost = smtp.wanadoo.nl
sample_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.3/samples
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix
setgid_group = postdrop
soft_bounce = yes
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550

What about the append_dot_mydomain / append_at_myorigin values?
(The latter are especially useful if you're
injecting "unqualified" usernames (ie "colin" or "root") in via CLI

This sounds promising, but according to mail.cf.default, these are
both already set in postfix to "yes" by default. Adding them to
main.cf doesn't appear to have any effect.
