virtual users and domanins and fetchmail
Hi, I have followed your how to and all is working right.

Now the problem is that i need to retrieve mails from another mail server.

I have understand I need to use fetchmail, but from what i have understand about fetchmail (more or less nothing :) ) it put retrieved mail into existing users accounts.

So how to make fetchmail working with virtual domains/users?

Thanks in advance.

To be honest, I don't know if this works with virtual users...

Dear Falko, thanks for replying.

I have tryed, and it just works :)

Now the situation is:
I use Amavis and from what I have understand If some person sends me an email from the internet it will be received by Postfix on default port 25; If Postfix accepts the email it will be forwarded to amavis on TCP port 10024 (SMTP); then if amavis considers the mail ok it will send the mail back to Postfix on TCP port 10025.
Finally postfix delivers the email to the actual recipient.

Do I have to set/change something with antispam/antivirus, because now e-mails arrives from fetchmail and not "directly" to the mail server or all is ok?

Thanks in advance.

Everything should be ok as fetchmail passes the mails on to Postfix which then processes them as usual.
