Default Email Forward Accounts "User unknown in virtual mailbox table."

When I create email forwards, it doesn't seem to pass a test, and refuses to let the remote server send the email into the server. I checked the DB, and the accounts are listed in the 'Mail_forwarding' table.

sending from a remote account using thunderbird, I get the message:

An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded: 5.1.1 <account@domain>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table. Please check the message recipient account@domain and try again.

I've tried searching a bit, and haven't found any luck finding information on this specific situation.

So, I guess this comes down to the fact that when the email attempts to send to the server, it is looking at the mailbox table and not seeing the accounts.

Is there something missed or messed up that would make the server reference the mail_forwarding table additionally to verify the accounts. I've not had any luck finding much info because everything I search for returns a bunch of results about real email addresses not working, but not a lot of info for cases where it's only the forwards that aren't working.

What is the hostname of the server, is it "domain"?

Please do a manual ispconfig update:

Code:
cd /tmp
wget http://www.ispconfig.org/downloads/ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
tar xvfz ISPConfig-3-stable.tar.gz
cd ispconfig3_install/install
php -q update.php
and choose to reconfigure services during update so that the postfix configuration gets rewritten to ensure that it is correct.
