What should happen is that user@dur.bounceme.net should be delivered to that users inbox on localhost, user@localhost. Thunderbird works fine at reading user@localhost.

I'm just using a small portion of postfix-dovecot with Ubuntu mailman. How can I get postfix to recognize the FQDN and deliver them to a localhost inbox?

there's definitely a transport problem:

    Where's the rest of the mail log entries? – Michael Hampton Aug 28 '12 at 5:40
  • @MichaelHampton I updated the question a bit, and will incorporate Laurentiu's answer, although I'm not sure how to check relay_transport. – Thufir Aug 28 '12 at 5:54

    Create an empty file /etc/postfix/transport if it does not exists. Go to /etc/postfix and run 'postmap transport'. – Laurentiu Roescu Aug 28 '12 at 7:11

default_transport=error 

permits only local delivery. Try change it to

default_transport=smtp

Check also relay_transport.

  • thanks, I've incorporated that and will test it. Not sure how to check relay_transport yet. – Thufir Aug 28 '12 at 5:58
  • I think it should be commented out or changed to relay_transport=relay. – Laurentiu Roescu Aug 28 '12 at 6:34
