email loop; Inbox not recognised as belonging on server?


Hi Guys,

I have two sendmail/procmail servers, one for incoming and one for outgoing.

I can see mail for one of my users (by looking at the message header) coming into server1, and then being forwarded back out to the isp mx from server2.

the user has an entry in /etc/alias in server1, which is the same configuration has the other users who dont have any issues.

what is also weird, is that the user is actually receving the email; its just the server doesn't realise this somehow?

Any help appreciated, Im a linux newbie not sure where to look next.

Cheers

Maybe check his .forward or .procmailrc to see if he's forwarding mail.

Thanks for the suggestion, but its not forwarding unfortunately. the user is just not being recongnised as belonging to my domain, and being bounced back out to the ISP mx.

Im stumped

I suppose you've checked the logs already.
