Before you claim about duplicates and so on, I've checked these topics:

The above topics doesn't solve my problems, perhaps this is something to do with my configuration file which totally differs to one of the topics above, so I'm posting a new fresh topic.

I'm trying to set up Postfix to work with sending emails and mail aliases. If I send an email with my hotmail account to developer@domain.com I get a reply from hotmail saying:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

      developer@domain.com

This is a typical test

I already have the mail aliases set up, pointing to the correct emails and such.

This is the /etc/postfix/main.cf I have.

# See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version


# Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
# line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
# is /etc/mailname.
#myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
biff = no

# appending .domain is the MUA's job.
append_dot_mydomain = no

# Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
#delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = no

# TLS parameters

smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

# See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
# information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = localhost
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
mydestination = $mydomain, $myhostname, localhost, localhost.localdomain, , localhost
#relayhost = 
relayhost = $mydomain

#mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8 [::ffff:127.0.0.0]/104 [::1]/128
mynetworks = 192.168.1.0/24 127.0.0.0/8

mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
mailbox_size_limit = 0
recipient_delimiter = +
inet_interfaces = all

Here's an log when I sent an email:

So and where did you specify for which domains Postfix should be responsible? Nowhere. This is why you get this error. Add your domain to the line of mydestination. And then you need at least a local user named developer or put an alias into /etc/aliases.

But you have to read this documentation as an absolute minimum before you start with Postfix: http://www.postfix.org/BASIC_CONFIGURATION_README.html

Thanks for the reply. I added mydomain = domain.com and changed relayhost to relayhost = mail.$mydomain. I get no more error mail from hotmail, but I don't see it in the aliased email inbox. Something wrong? –  MacMac Nov 10 '11 at 17:23
    
@YouBook Probably. But without log messages I can't help (new question!). I'm not that good at divination. –  mailq Nov 10 '11 at 17:26
    
Ah yes, updated my post. –  MacMac Nov 10 '11 at 17:32

@YouBook Remove the line with relayhost (completely!). –  mailq Nov 10 '11 at 17:36
    
Updated my post again. –  MacMac Nov 10 '11 at 17:39
