Wordpress and Postfix issues not receving emails that are sent to email addresses that are on the site domain.

I have a multisite setup running on lempstack w ubuntu4.11. Installed postfix and have no problem sending emails to my personal email address or other member addresses. But when a notification is sent out or I send an email to an address that is on the site domain (Like the example below) its not received, says its sent but it never comes through. Any Ideas?

This is because Postfix assumed the hostname for itself handles the mail for that hostname. To fix this edit your postfix’s and add a line like this:

mydestination =

If you already have this line and it has a bunch of domains, make sure the hostname you are having issues with isn’t on the list.

Then reload postfix with

/etc/init.d/postfix reload
