I have a VPS with Postfix. E-mail is working - I can send messages to and from it, tested using
mutt and my GMail account.
However, I want to forward all mails send to my VPS to my GMail account so it's all in one place.
I tried specifying my gmail address in my
.forward, but after doing so, e-mails just get lost completely. They don't show up in
mutt, and they don't show up in GMail.
mail.log suggest that the e-mail was sent on, and there are no errors that I can see in
mail.err. From my perspective it looks as if GMail is just receiving the e-mail and discarding it, but that can't be right!
Addendum: Specifying my forwarding e-mail address in
/etc/postfix/virtual leads to the same result:
