    I try to forward root mail on one of my servers to info@mycompany.com

    Mails hang in mail queue with this error:

    550 Administrative prohibition

    What is it?

    BTW the message that is sent to root is this one:

    Cannot open /var/log/sa/sa26: No such file or directory

    What does it mean?

    There was a zone myserver.com on the server of mycompany.com

    Removing it solved it!

    what happens in the case where the zone is on the sending server due to clustering???

    I have one server which root emails get sent out from to the master servers address this then gets forwarded to me at my support address which happens to be on the sending server..

    ie

    server.mydomain.com sends root email to mydomain.com which then forwards it to an address @mysupport.com whihc is on the server.mydomain.com

    That solutions works but isn't ideal

    While turning of 'Verify the existance of email senders.' works it isn't the proper solution. The reason my server was rejecting the mail was that root messages where being sent without From: header. Is there a way to make sure all email coming from a server has a from header?
