    Hello,

    First thanks in advice for helping out. I have a domain name that is hosted on my server. Currently they have not switched DNS to my server and they are still pointing to ipowerweb. I have already setup there domain name on my server and they have already setup the same e-mail account.

    If i send them an e-mail from my server it tries to deliver locally instead of looking remotely. In the logs I get this error message.

    T=local_delivery defer (122): Disk quota exceeded: mailbox is full
    Return to Mail Queue

    Its trying to deliver locally instead of doing a look up on the domain name which if i do a dig from my server on the domain name it gives the following:

    *NOTE* I replaced the domain name to ensure privacy

    This is a ns dig lookup. Why is it trying to deliver locally and not remotely.

    My /etc/resolve.conf is the following:

    root@web1 [/home/www]# cat /etc/resolv.conf

    nameserver 64.39.2.170
    nameserver 64.39.2.138
    root@web1 [/home/www]#

    Thanks

    I believe it's doing this because the domain is listed in /etc/localdomains.
