Default Interesting Mail Problem

I hadn't noticed this until now and it's an interesting problem with Postfix...

I have a few sites on my system. Two of the sites have a user name of "jim". So that makes user names like web1_jim and web2_jim.

The interesting part is all mail for web2_jim is going to web1_jim.

Now, what I THINK is happening is Postfix isn't doing a complete domain name check on the user names. I say this because both domain names are identical in size and start with the same word. Something like mashersock.com and masherhost.com.

So you'd have

jim@mashersock.com web1_jim
jim@masherhost.com web2_jim

So, like I said it seems to be matching the first "jim@masher" and deliverying mail there.

Any ideas?

Not really. Nobody is configured as a catch all and it's only those two addresses that deliver improperly. All others deliver correctly.

What's in /etc/postfix/local-host-names and /etc/postfix/virtusertable?
