Posftfix/Dovecot receive email... no way!

Hello, I am struggling 2 days to setup mail server with webmin/virtualmin.

I already can send mail but every incoming message bounces with error unknown user.

If anyone want to help please tell me what info you need.

Thank you in advance




See /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.dist for a commented, more complete version Debian specific: Specifying a file name will cause the first line of that file to be used as the name. The Debian default is /etc/mailname. myorigin = /etc/mailname

smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU) biff = no

appending .domain is the MUA's job.

append_dot_mydomain = no

Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings delay_warning_time = 4h

readme_directory = no

TLS parameters

smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.crt smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/ssl/smtpd.key smtpd_use_tls = yes smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtpd_scache smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${data_directory}/smtp_scache

See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

myhostname = host.mysite.com alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases

Howdy -- it looks like there have been some changes made to your /etc/postfix/main.cf from the default that gets configured when Virtualmin is installed. One thing in particular is that it doesn't look like "virtual_alias_maps" points to a maps file.

It looks like you're using Virtualmin GPL there though, so the best place to get support would be using the Forums. We monitor the Forums, along with lots of wonderful folks in the community!

My suggestion would be to start a new Forum thread, and in that thread, let us know what the output of "postconf -n" is.

However, you could also just try setting the virtual_alias_maps line to the following to see if this resolves it:

virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

Thx for the pointers I did as you suggested.
