Original message:

Hi all.
I have a mail problem on my solaris 2.6 workstation. A external user (by
host: master) cannot send me a mail (on host: erice) receiving a local
configuration error message by his system.
Here the error message :
 553 config error: mail loops back to myself
 554 <>... Local configuration error
 But I can send mail to this user.
I have done some tests using mailx -v from remote host master to my host erice
(both systems belong to same domain:
 Here is the output:
 1) from master to erice .. Connecting to ..
 220 Sendmail ....
 250 Hello master, pleased to meet you.
>> MAIL from:<>
 250 Message accepted for delivery
 221 closing connection
The output of domainname on erice is correct. I think the problem consist
in a wrong configuration of the my sendmail. May you help me ? Thank you.
