I gave the system this name, as it shall only deliver local mail. The 
command hostname -f states kiwi.local, dnsdomainname says local, 
dnsdomainname -f says kiwi.local. I can ping kiwi.local, as it is 
configured in /etc/hosts. The only thing that doesn't find it, is 
nslookup. I don't know how postfix checks domainnames, but usually the 
checking order is hosts,bind, meaning that first /etc/hosts is checked, 
then the DNS. But maybe i understood something wrong with this 
domainname thing, i should have configured it as localhost. The name 
kiwi.local is an alias for in /etc/hosts.

Any ideas, suggestions, ...?
