we agree that these are all relevant entries for this domain?

Quote:
cat /etc/postfix/virtusertable | grep pacura.ru
abuse@www.pacura.ru web6_postmaster
webmaster@www.pacura.ru web6_postmaster
admin@www.pacura.ru web6_postmaster
ovidiu@www.pacura.ru web6_postmaster
web6_postmaster@www.pacura.ru web6_postmaster
abuse@pacura.ru web6_postmaster
webmaster@pacura.ru web6_postmaster
admin@pacura.ru web6_postmaster
ovidiu@pacura.ru web6_postmaster
web6_postmaster@pacura.ru web6_postmaster
so all mail to these users goes to web6_postmaster and web6_postmaster@pacura.ru goes to web6_postmaster !?

is this not a loop? Inside ispcfg panel I entered postmaster@web-designerz.de which is web1_postmaster as the target address for forwarding all mails of postmaster@pacura.ru and mails do arrive there, but this looked like a loop to me.

That's ok, it's no loop. You can watch your mail log how emails for web6_postmaster@pacura.ru are rewritten to web6_postmaster@h5...serverkompetenz.net, so there's no loop.

It will go directly to web6_postmaster's mailbox, because Postfix can't find the address in /etc/postfix/virtusertable and therefore tries to find a system user named web6_postmaster.

If you want mails for web6_postmaster to be forwarded to web1_postmaster, you can do that with the forward field in ISPConfig, or you use /etc/aliases.

thats exactly what I have been asking the whole time :-) does it work if I insert postmaster@web-designerz.de (which is the email address of web1_postmaster) into the forward field (for ovidiu@pacura.ru which is web6_postmaster) in ispconfig or do I have to enter web1_postmaster ?

The forward is done using procmail recipes. Have a look at the procmail recipes in web6_postmaster's homedir.
