[SOLVED] Wrong Recipient Mailadress configured


Aug 5, 2021
Hey guys,

I'm running a small datacenter with 2 hosts. On one host was a wrong recipient adress configured before the 2nd host joined the datacenter.
After the joining process I changed the root users mailadress under Datacenter > Permissions > Users.

That made only a change on my first existing host and not on the 2nd (that one that joined later).

Now I get a lot of wrong mail retries on my google account day after day...

How can I fix this in the cli?
the configuration should actually be shared across the cluster. What kind of messages are they, e.g. from backup jobs? Please also check the /var/log/syslog for what happens when a mail is sent on the problematic node.
I guess a reload/restart of the postfix was just missing. Right now not getting any warnings on my mail anymore.

It was coming from SMART error tracking.
