system mail gets double domain (home.home)

system mail gets double domain (home.home)
« on: August 15, 2005, 01:45:25 PM »
Sme-server 6.0.1-01 set up as private server & gateway.
The domain name is "home". I have an account called "amanda".
In email settings,
Forwarding address for administrative notices = amanda@home.
(I've tried other possibilities, like just plain old "amanda", and even my ISP mail address, which gets rejected because the sending domain won't resolve).

I use fetchmail to retrieve mail from my ISP, through spamassassin (installed from jesper's install_spamassassin.sh yesterday), and webmail to read my mail.

My first problem is the doubling up of the domain name (@home.home). Sending mail to amanda@home works fine.

I tried grep 'root@home.home' /etc/*
and returned nothing.

This is a sample of a system generated email which eventually finds it's way into my personal mailbox (amanda@home).


Hi. This is the qmail-send program at home.
I tried to deliver a bounce message to this address, but the bounce bounced!

<root@home.home>:
Sorry, I couldn't find any host named home.home. (#5.1.2)

--- Below this line is the original bounce.

Return-Path: <>
Received: (qmail 21636 invoked for bounce); 15 Aug 2005 11:20:07 -0000

From: MAILER-DAEMON@home
To: root@home.home
Subject: failure notice

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at home.
I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses.
This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out.

<amanda@home.home>:
Sorry, I couldn't find any host named home.home. (#5.1.2)

fetchmail:-:7: parse error at protocol


My next problem is obviously the fetchmail parse error.

Any and all help really appreciated, as this has been driving me bonkers for 2 years (used sme 6.0 final from Mitel previously, and just ignored the mail errors).

The domain name is "home".


For a start try to change your domain name to "home.xxx" which looks more like a valid domain.

See "defaultdomain" in:

http://www.ezmlm.org/man/man8/qmail-inject.8.html

qmail-inject interprets user@home as being addressed to a hostname in your current domain. It converts the hostname to a "fully qualified domain name" by adding the default domain name, which is how you are getting "home.home".

Use a proper domain name, and you won't have this problem.

Me too,

I have also been fighting with this for years, I have several server only installs.  Can someone post commands that would fix this.  I couldn't make heads or tails of

I found this but still no luck.

Option 2 in the console will allow you to change the domain name. Use a properly formatted domain name - mydomain.local, for instance.
