Hi there guys I have a question not really sure why this is happening and really this is down to my lack of knowledge of CGP (SMTP) logs.

To explain I used to host an email domain singlecity.co.uk I haven’t for some years now, I noticed the other day that I’m getting a stack of entries in the logs about the domain. SEE Below, I don’t understand why I’m getting these, I’ve checked the domain its DNS and there are no DNS records at all for that domain. Presumably I’m getting these because someone has hard coded the IP for the old mail server? The first part of the logs I get, we don’t relay and the domain isn’t in our domain list anymore. What I don’t understand is why the attempt isn’t dropped straight away after all the domain doesn’t exist and why I get what looks like mail for the domain in the SMTP queue.

 

Any help reduce my ignorance is gratefully accepted. Happy to supply more detail, normally CGP just works (Which is why I use it) and I only noticed this as I was checking something else. I’ve now added a router record:

“<singlecity.co.uk> = null ; blackhole we don't host this domain anymore” Which I assume is the best thing to do?
