Wondering about Mailserver/Mailserver Aliases

By creating a new virtual server i have to enter a emailadress, which is being used by the system to send emails like "Howdy, your server has been created", and is also used for the aliases like postmaster, webmaster, abuse etc.

aamof, i entered a emailadress which is elswhere, but i get never a system email.

Also, if i create a mail alias for a server and try to send a mail, i will receive a bounce.

So, what did i miss to get this mail through?

Nobody here can tell you why your mail is not delivered without any further information. That is like calling your car service and saying "my car dies down while driving, why?" and expecting them to fix it over the phone.

So, first step with such problems is always to check the system logs, in this case probably (depending on your distro, which you didn't tell us) /var/log/mail.*. You should find details about reason of email sending failure there.
