Relay recipients Backup MX, whole domain

this is for information only since it is wrongly written in the manual of ISPconfig3.
The manual says it shoud be like:
Server: <ISPconfig server>
Relay recipient: <email@domain.tld or domain.tld>

Actually. If you want to be a backup MX for a whole domain. You should use "@domain.tld". If the @ is not included it will mention "rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table;"

the in /etc/postfix should have:

transport_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/
relay_recipient_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/

good luck everyone searching for this. I hope this gets rectified in the manual.

Chapter, right? I've changed it to

Relay recipient: Fill in the email address or email domain, e.g. or

It will be available with the next update.

page 131,

it should be changed on page 131. (chapter Email Routing) It has a picture where no @ is used.

and indeed in chapter, like you said.

Hi, you should have answer in the other topic:

backup MX without ISPconfig3 is no problem.
This should also work in multi setup.
