Mails for formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk should be going to formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk and they are not, that is correct.

The full header says it is coming from www-data@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk to formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk but instead they are being delivered to mike@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk. The header says it is being delivered to web26_chrisg@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk.

I have removed the www sub-domain and filled in the form again. It has come to me again. Should I restrat Postfix, ISPConfig, or just leave it for a short while and try again?

web26_chrisg@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk should not be an account at all. I have certainly not deliberately set it up as a catch-all account.

The entries for this domain in /etc/virtusertable are:
Code:
formresponse@www.plainmortgageadvice.co.uk    web26_chrisg
web26_chrisg@www.plainmortgageadvice.co.uk    web26_chrisg
formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk    web26_chrisg
web26_chrisg@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk    web26_chrisg
Did you want to see the whole table?

As posted earlier, the only entry in /etc/aliases is:
Code:
# See man 5 aliases for format
postmaster:    root

Output of grep web26_chrisg /etc/passwd:
Code:
web26_chrisg:x:10041:10026:Chris Glen:/var/www/web26:/dev/null
Here is a recent log output fromanother test filling in of the form (@localhost added to suername during tests):
Code:
Feb 12 20:30:38 sww postfix/cleanup[6452]: A1F9F21A5A: message-id=<20080212203038.6106321A60@stopwatchweb.co.uk>
Feb 12 20:30:38 sww postfix/qmgr[5852]: A1F9F21A5A: from=<www-data@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk>, size=826, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Feb 12 20:30:38 sww postfix/local[6454]: 6106321A60: to=<web26_chrisg@localhost>, orig_to=<formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk>, relay=local, delay=0.49, delays=0.32/0.04/0/0.13, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (forwarded as A1F9F21A5A)
Feb 12 20:30:49 sww postfix/local[6455]: A1F9F21A5A: to=<mike@sww.stopwatchweb.co.uk>, orig_to=<formresponse@plainmortgageadvice.co.uk>, relay=local, delay=10, delays=0.05/0.04/0/10, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to command: /usr/bin/procmail -f-)
Feb 12 20:30:49 sww postfix/qmgr[5852]: A1F9F21A5A: removed
which appears to suggest the mail is being sent. is it likely there is a procmailrc directive preventing the mail going to the correct address? There is no /etc/procmailrc fileon my system. Should I create one and put in (which?) directives?

I now have another client reporting the same problem. As with the first, before adjustments, mail is disappearing rather than coming to me as email server administrator.

Each user has two mailboxes. One is in /var/mail and the other is in /var/www/web##/user/web##_uname.

I resolved the problems by pointing the users at the correct mailboxes.
