Question Mail Queue...

This is my problem: I am a novice e-mail admin in my company and I'm using Postfix to exchange internal e-mails. When a user sends an e-mail to a domain that don't exists, it stays in the queue. How can I set up the postfix daemon to automaticaly return the e-mail to its sender if the domain is not valid?
Thanks in advance.

Hi ,

First thing : How does it accept mails if the User doesnt belong to
server !!!!

to remove mails from the mail queue u can do :

postfix stop
find /var/spool/postfix -name queue-id -print | xargs rm
postfix start

queue-id would be a numeric value like this: DB6831A80B
