Smile HELP! Nagios email notification using Postfix

Hi to All,

My Nagios email Notification is not working,I'm trying to setup external relay server using GMAIL. I'm also using dynamic IP.

Please see the test below

tagz-jabez postfix # sendmail -bv
Feb 15 16:09:14 tagz-jabez postfix/qmgr[29896]: C3E9C10567: from=<>, size=1842, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Feb 15 16:09:29 tagz-jabez postfix/smtp[1593]: C3E9C10567: to=<>, relay=none, delay=3291, delays=3276/0.03/15/0, dsn=4.4.3, status=deferred (Host or domain name not found. Name service error for type=MX: Host not found, try again)
tagz-jabez postfix #


myhostname = tagz-jabez
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
mydestination =,tagz-jabez, localhost.localdomain, localhost
relayhost =
mynetworks = [::ffff:]/104 [::1]/128
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all
default_transport = smtp
relay_transport = smtp
myorigin = /etc/mailname
inet_protocols = all
mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"

Appreciate all your help on this problem.

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Please don't post your problem/question in multiple forums. Doing this will only confuse you and us and take the focus of the conversation. Keep it in your first thread. This one reported as double-post.

Kind regards,
