edit email account that cron uses to send out

I get the below bounce back when try to email out cron report.

Undeliverable: Cron <root@linux> /usr/bin/wget https://www.domain.info/php/cron.php >/var/www/vhosts/default/htdocs/cron-logs-1481456

The reson it's rejected is because it trys to send out using the following email address which doesn't exsist.

MAILER-DAEMON@linux.domain.local

How do I edit the above email address so mail servers will accept it?

I've just replaced domain names local or external with domain.

I don't think there is a problem with the mailer-daemon, are you able to send a normal e-mail to "dan@domain.eu"?

Yes, the mailer-daemon address isn't a correct email address that's why it rejects it.

I see the host is using a fictional name, I don't see how we can just change the e-mail address - I think we need a new approach.

I was reading the following link - see if you can follow and let's discuss

In /etc/postfix/main.cf, what do you have for $myhostname, $myorigin, and $mydomain ?

Check out http://www.postfix.org/postconf.5.html#myhostname -- your sending server hostname and email from-domain need to be internet-resolvable, they cannot end in .local.

The change required are

(1) mailing domain name needs to be changed - some thing like  linux.domain.co.uk.


(2) add a valid forward and reverse DNS entry for domain  linux.domain.co.uk.

OR

Your exchange needs to relay the server from which the mail is generated.
