I first thought I might have one or two ideas on what goes wrong, but
thinking about them I ended up with: "this is nonsense".
So it's debugging time. You have set up / done something _REALLY_
wicked. I don't know what yet, but it must be something from "the outer
Therefore your have to do _real_ debugging right know:
- figure qmail-smtpd PID (i.e.: figure the PID of 'tcpserver' or 'inetd'
process that is bound to port 25)
- attach 'strace' (I'm assuming you're running Linux; if you're on *BSD
use 'truss') to this process:
strace -tf -o /tmp/qmail-smtpd.log -s 4096 -p $PID_of_QMAIL_SMTPD
- send a mail to '[EMAIL PROTECTED]'
- after the mail has bounces kill the 'strace'.
- post the file '/tmp/qmail-smtpd.log', compress before attaching it to
a mail, send via PM if passwords might occur in the file (e.g. due to
Of course you can have a look at the file yourself and if your think
you figured the cause of your problem you can drop a note about this

content of the file. Don't strip something out, don't anonymize.

message you presented indicates the domain ain't found there.
If it were and only "delivery" would fail the error you get back would
be a different one.
