OK, I'll test it later. Thanks.

However I can't resolve why Kmail works w/o problem. It is on the same PC, same ISP, same Mail Server, same accounts and same recipients for testing etc. The only difference is Kmail running on F7 on anoterh HD.

Edit - 1

I'll follow;

to proceed.

The Mail Server is running serving several users. They already have their accounts created. Therefore I'll skip following steps
postconf -e 'home_mailbox = Maildir/'
postconf -e 'mailbox_command ='
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

useradd -d /home/sample_user -g users sample_user
passwd sample_user

$ ls /etc/postfix
Code:       sasl           postfix-files   ssl
postfix-script  virtual
post-install    virtual.db
What are "virtual" and "virtual.db" for ???

$ sudo postconf -e 'virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable'
$ sudo postconf -e 'mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names'

$ sudo nano /etc/postfix/local-host-names
copying following lines on it
localhost (Shall I retain this domain ???)
What is "" for?? I don't have this domain on

$ sudo nano /etc/postfix/virtusertable

adding following lines on it
Code:  user1  user1  user1  user2  user2  user1 (OR user2 ???)  user3  user3  user1 (OR user3 ???)

etc. (create above 3 lines for each user ???)

$ sudo postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable

$ sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart

Please advise to avoid making mistake and causing problem to existing users. TIA

Edit - 2:

I'm now on the same Workstation running F7. New discovery;

Evolution running on F7 works seamlessly. It can send and receive mails, with the same settings as on Ubuntu, via the Mail Server w/o problem. This discovery makes me considering that Evolution on Ubuntu may has no problem. Neither there is a problem on the Mail Server. Ubuntu may has some misconfiguration causing the problem on "Relay access denied".
