I have amavis-new installed with iRedMail package.

Everything works OK for mails sent directly to existing user accounts. But I would like to use catch-all for domains and aliases.

The problem is that amavis LDAP queries does not take aliases and catch-all settings form OpenLDAP into account

I changed $enable_ldap to 0 but LDAP was still used, so I commented out LDAP query. Unfortunately that didn't help.

How to completely disable checking of local users on the amavis level? I would like amavis to accept mail sent to any e-mail address. Postfix will do the rest

I was wrong blaming amavis for that problem.

After consulting with one of iRedMail developers I found that problem is with dovecot, not amavis
