recently i configured my postfix server with dovecot, sasl and ldap according some tutorials. it works fine indeed but always when i receive email it disappears after literally 5 minutes, postfix says its forwarding mail loop, i was struggling for 2 weeks to find the bug but no idea where it could be, here is my postconf

  • i found out that it could have something to do with e-mail transports, because as i configured the email server the first time i used yast, does anyone know where to find these options?

Problem found, it was fetchmails fault. in the logs i could read that the email is fetched twice, it caused a problem with delivered-to header as well. thats why forwarding mail loop occured
