Ok, in order to make this how to work for me at all i had to remove the proxy: from the mysql statements in main.cf
and make it look like this
which is copied from Christoph Haas's tutorial falko has linked to in his tutorial.
and figure out that if i have virtual domains example.com and example2.com then my server is still mail.mydomain.tld for all my virtual domains.
The system is now creating mailboxes for domains i have created in mysql there are a couple of problems im encountering now,
i can send and receive emails from my email@example.com
using mail.mydomain.tld and i can send emails to my new virtualdomains.com to activate them.
i can mail in to mydomain.tld from outside my network but if i send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
then somewhere from the other day is a cached email forwarding address that i inputted wrong and the emails fail and get returned to the external email address. Does anyone know in which file or db these cached addresses are so i can delete it, and no its not in mysql mail database. see below
from hotmail mailer-daemon
(generated from email@example.com
)SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<firstname.lastname@example.org>:host mx3.hotmail.com [126.96.36.199]: 550 Requested action not taken:mailbox unavailable
now from this line above i think in know that this domain is working (generated from email@example.com
and i have firstname.lastname@example.org
working and sending and receiving emails into and out of my network so it has to be this hidden cached file from the other day.
Hope what i have done might work for others who have difficulty with this how to aswell but like always no guarantees.
