I am trying to configure postfix to send mails to multiple email address using sender_bcc, if I send caterpillar@domain.com it should send a bcc mail to xyz@domain.com as well as abc@gmail.com.

Example :

caterpillar@domain.com ----> xyz@domain.com, caterpillar@domain.com ----> abc@gmail.com

how to configure it?

I have never actually configured postfix but just found this tutorial and I am not sure if it will help you... the last comment on the site shows using more than one forwarder by separating emails by a comma

Tutorial Link

This page use virtual_alias_maps instead *_bcc parameter as you proposed in question. So I was wondering if you could bcc to one email and then use postfix virtual to then forward to the addresses you require?

hope that helps

Problem Fixed, Thanks for the reply. Solution: create a file in /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/virtual.tab. Postmap the file. Follow as below. Add the email address caterpillar@domain.com 123@domain.com (here 123@domain.com is not a mailbox or distbox its just a dummy address). In virtual.tab add the email address to which account the mail copies to be sent. 123@domain.com abc@domain@.com, xyz@gmail.com, hdg@hotmail.com Add this line to main.cf virtual_alias_maps = proxy:ldap:/opt/zimbra/conf/ldap-vam.cf,hash:/opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/virtual.ta‌​b –  Caterpillar Jun 26 '09 at 11:08
