if you don't want mail to loop.

I tried to add $myhostname and also wrote the exact host name as Mr Philip said  on "mydestination" section,  but first it didn't work until I found that the "myhostname" section on the postfix configuration file is not the same as the server's hostname :)

I found that using the command : postconf -n

to check the postfix configuration file

many thanks for your great help 😊
