Cool Recipient address rejected


The problem is beetwen my gateway lan interface eth1 192.168.1.1 and the mail server 192.168.1.4 after it.This is on the gateway logs:
Code:
Security Events
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Oct 17 08:02:10 argo nullmailer[8561]: smtp: Failed: 450 <mail.gabrix.ath.cx>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
Oct 17 08:02:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Sending failed:  Temporary error in sending the message
Oct 17 08:02:10 argo nullmailer[8565]: smtp: Failed: 450 <mail.gabrix.ath.cx>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table
Mail sent by logchek and nullmailer on the gateway host.
But after a little mail gets sent :
Code:
System Events
=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Oct 17 08:02:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:02:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:03:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:04:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:05:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:06:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
Oct 17 08:07:10 argo nullmailer[13133]: Delivery complete, 1 message(s) remain.
The /etc/hosts file is the same on both hosts argo and mail,the /etc/aliases too ... where else could i look ???
My doubt is if this happens for all mail , internet and local , or only the loal one.
My lan is so configured:
Quote:
[router-modem192.168.0.1]---[192.168.0.2linux-box-gateway192.168.1.1]---[192.168.1.6mailserver]
I hope it helps ...

Is it a case of http://www.postfix.org/LOCAL_RECIPIENT_README.html?

In order to help I need to be sure I understand what you're trying to do. Postfix is just acting as a relay (email firewall/gateway) in front of your real internal SMTP server.

If this is in fact the case then you should be using the relay_domains & relay_recipient_maps parameters to handle this. Also, be sure $mydomain isn't listed in mydestination, because you don't want local delivery, you want to relay incoming email to your internal SMTP server.

Post the following so we can see how you're setup.
Code:
postconf -n
