Hi guys, I am trying to add a domain name to my domain relay list in Linux.

After I add the domain name in all appropriate fields, I get this message

postfix: fatal: /etc/postfix/, line 39: missing '=' after attribute name:,

What am I doing wrong since I have just added a domain name and havent change a thing in this directory?

    By right you should have only one $mydomain and $myhostname.

    However, you can add more domains in $mydestination.

    Add it within the same line, do not make a new line.

    Sorry guys, found the problem 5 min after I posted this.
    on the second line of my domain names that I entered, I had to add = before the domain names.

    Problem solved.

    Thanks for your time.
