I have a mail server set up which is responsible for several virtual users and domains. These mails are delivered fine to the respective mailbox.
But I can't get local delivery for system accounts (root, http, ...) to work. This is my alias file:
root: <local_user> <local_user>: <firstname.lastname@example.org> MAILER-DAEMON: postmaster postmaster: root bin: root daemon: root named: root nobody: root uucp: root www: root ftp-bugs: root postfix: root http: root
This is the relevant part of
alias_database = $alias_maps alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/aliases append_dot_mydomain = no html_directory = no inet_protocols = ipv4 mail_owner = postfix mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq manpage_directory = /usr/share/man mydestination = localhost.$mydomain, localhost, localhost.localdomain mydomain = <mydomain.org> myhostname = <myhost.mydomain.org> mynetworks_style = host myorigin = $mydomain sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail setgid_group = postdrop unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550 virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual virtual_gid_maps = static:5000 virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail virtual_mailbox_domains = <mydomain.org mydomain2.org mydomain3.org ...> virtual_mailbox_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/vmailbox
Values in <...> are obviously placeholders.
When I locally send a mail to
root. Postfix completes the address to email@example.com, which it then wants to deliver via
virtual but of course
firstname.lastname@example.org is not a valid virtual address (and it should not be).
It would work if the address is completed to
root@localhost for local delivery. But when sending emails.
How would I accomplish that? Or what else should I do to get local delivery to work? Thanks for your help.
mydomain = <mydomain.org> to above config output, because that wasn't obvious.
