Mail Server Problems

Hi,

I set up Merak Mail server last night to handle my email. However, every time it conects to mail.plus.net to check for new messages, I recieve an email from MAILER-DAEMON@ptb-mailstore01.plus.net saying

Hi. This is the qmail-send program at ptb-mailstore01.plus.net.
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.

<mike@michaelscott.plus.com>:
This message is looping: it already has my Delivered-To line. (#5.4.6)


I think the key is that 'the message is looping' - what does that mean?

Mail Server Problems

By the sounds of things, your mail server is receiving e-mail and then attempting to send it straight back out.

The problem with this, is that the PlusNet mail delivery platform, then tries to deliver it back to you again. IE, it loops around and around and around... You get the picture.

I guess you need to recheck the configuration of the mailserver.

Mail Server Problems

Thanks. Everything is fixed now. Indeed my server was sending it back to +net. When collecting from a remote server I have to forward to an internal address, eg alias@mscott.me.uk - I stupidly forwarded it to alias@michaelscott.plus.com
