I am using "virtual Domains" in Postfix as I don't want to setup a Unix user for each email. In some cases I wanted to forward the email to more than 1 recipient, so I inserted in /etc/postfix/virtual these 2 entries for the same email address:

person1@example.com    forward1@domain.com
person1@example.com    forward2@whatever.com

But Postfix only sent the email to the first email address (forward1@domain.com)

So I just entered one line with the emails separated with a comma:

person1@example.com    forward1@domain.com,forward2@whatever.com

It works but I was wondering if this is the correct way to do it (obviously it is the simplest)

Thanks in advance :)
