I'm trying to setup Postfix on Amazon AWS so that all emails forwarded to email@example.com will be forwarded to my personal email. I've verified my personal email address which it will be forwarding to, I've verified firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'm no longer in production mode.
The issue seems to be that the email addresses that write to email@example.com are not verified, obviously. And when the message comes through Amazon rejects it without forwarding to my personal email. I get a log entry like this:
Apr 20 17:33:12 ip-XX-XX-XXX-XXX postfix/smtp: E10ED1234: to=<firstname.lastname@example.org>, orig_to=<email@example.com>, relay=email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com[126.96.36.199]:25, delay=0.28, delays=0.01/0.03/0.12/0.13, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (host email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com[188.8.131.52] said: 554 Message rejected: Email address is not verified. (in reply to end of DATA command))
I have another email address which is also verified, and when I mail from that address to firstname.lastname@example.org then it successfully forwards it where I want. So the basic setup with Amazon SES is working, but I'm obviously missing something with regards to setting it up for an email forward/relay.
Any help would be much appreciated
