broken or poorly implemented chroot, wherein the resolver Postfix uses
can be different than the resolver everything outside the Postfix chroot
I vaguely recall this happening to me many many years ago with Debian,
when I modified /etc/resolv.conf and the change was not picked up in
/var/spool/postfix/etc/resolv.conf. The two resolvers were returning
different results so testing in a root shell with host and dig was
counterproductive and masked the problem.
Wietse helped me identify the chroot as the problem and I was able to
track down how to fix it after I knew where to look. He is trying to do
the same for you here. He is simply not spoon feeding you the complete
answer, complete picture. He's pointing you in the right direction so
you can do the rest of the sleuthing yourself. Some folks here will
hold your hand start to finish at times. But for the most part I think
most folks here try to be enablers, not function as consultants. This
is all volunteer after all.
