I setup Postfix and Dovecot with mysql but can't receive mail for users defined in database.

Actually I can login to webmail and even send mail.

Remote host said: 550 5.1.1 <>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table [RCPT_TO]

I'd appreciate your help.

you might want to provide postconf -n and some information about your user table / contents of your postfix virtual_mailbox_maps file etc. . With the current information I don't think anyone will be able to help. – Gryphius Jun 23 '13 at 10:32
local_recipient_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/

in /etc/postfix/

This fixed my issue.
