    Still not working, getting same error.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    mydestination =, localhost, localhost.localdomain,

    The last entry should not be there.

    I added it as a thing from the solution I mentioned in starting post. If I remove it, the problem still persist.

    A domain that you want to use for email in ispconfig 3 may not be listed in mydestination or mydomain in postfix The solution you posted above is for a completely different software and mailsetup (ispconfig 2). Applying this to a ispconfig 3 server will cause the server to fail.

    Did you restart postfix after you changed the file?

    I did restart postfix yes.

    Still having the same error, have the following now:

    The last message I tried to send gave this in the mail log:
    I don't know what is happening :(
