I'm running postfix on a debian lenny system. sending mail in general works without any problems. however some recipent mail systems return an error and I can't get a clue what is causing the problem. So far I suspect that this is either postfix setup itself or the reverse dns resolution.
The mail server is running on a virtual server from my service provider.
running the command
hostname is returning
my.domain however running
host <ip-address> is returning some alias from the virtual server system. now i'm not quite sure if that is causing my problem????
