	A few seconds Googling for "postfix mail loops back to myself" 
turns up the page at <http://www.topology.org/linux/postfixloop.html> 
as the third link.  Most of the other links that are returned are 
from the archive of the postfix-users mailing list.

	The issue is not that this is a common or uncommon problem.  The 
issue is that this is a postfix problem, and the answer is easily 
found in the archives of their mailing list, as well as various other 
related pages.

	Moreover, a few seconds spent searching for the answer on your 
part means that those of us who have run into this problem before 
don't have to sit down and spend a lot of time to effectively 
re-invent the wheel in order to try to put together an explanation of 
the sort seen at <http://www.topology.org/linux/postfixloop.html>.
