got a problem with a email account
i have got this email account on my server and its setup like this :
but theres a alias in postfix called sales that goes to postmaster then goes to root and for some reason its messing up the email, anything going to firstname.lastname@example.org goes to root not salesuser which it is set has. But once i change the alias from postmaster to the salesuser then it works. I have tried deleting the alias but its seem like its fixed to that account and after deleting the alias the email fail to send from hotmail. Then i put the alias back in again and set to root , email for email@example.com goes to root then i change the alias to salesuser and it starts woking any idea why this is happening
Delete all salesuser entries from /etc/aliases, run
i have deleted the salesuser unix account and deleted the entry in the /etc/aliases and run newaliases and restart postfix. Then i have put the created the salesuser unix account again and put the entry firstname.lastname@example.org salesuser and postmap it and restarted postfix but its coming back a message from hotmail saying delivery to email@example.com has failed like it was before but as soon has i create the alias sales > salesuser it works fine. also when looking in the other email unix accounts theres a non proper message saying dont detele but there aint one in the salesuser unix account?
I think you need to read some documentation and figure out exactly what you are trying to do.
Then if you still have problems give the people here a clear description of what you want
i want it back has before eg:
and so it doesnt keep on relaying on the alias to send the mail to the account in the virtusertable which it show do!
, since the alias come into it , its been messing about the email account. But why it is when you create a unix account for the first time it creates the non proper message say dont detele it this is a message from the mail system etc then when you detele the unix account and then create it again the message aint there. I guess thats why it aint send to that account becuase it has not got the non proper message.
Also the documentation does not say about this problem i am having, because i have looked!!!
Please post your /etc/aliases here.

I don't see salesuser in there... :confused:
