I have a mail server for a domain foo.com. Currently all users’ mail box is also in the same server. Now my office is starting its operation in multiple Countries. How can I have mailbox store of the users in one country to be stored locally in a server in that country office server. My current setup is a combination of Postfix + Courier IMAP + MySQL + Amavisd-new + SpamAssassin + ClamAV + SASL . Basically what I need is user A's mails should go to the server in Country A and user B's mails should go to the server in Country B. If my question is not clear enough I am open to questions. One main thing here is the domain name should be the same for all users. I cannot have an id like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
Use postfix transport maps.
e.g. in main.cf
That will deliver email for user1 and user2 to uk-mailserver.example.com
If you don't specify anything in the transport map, the default transport (which is usually deliver locally) will be used. You'll also need to make sure both sets of users are accepted as valid recipients on this machine (usually by making sure they have accounts)
It's also a good idea to split mail routing out from your mailbox server and do routing/spam/virus etc filtering on frontend MX machines.
