Default Mail alias troubles

Hi,

ISPConfig has been working well, but I've juste noticed a little problem with email alias.
I've created a new user "all@example.com" and in the "Alias" field I've added all email accounts in the domain (about 100).

I've sent yesterday an email to all@example.com, I thought it was fine till I've received a mail telling me that 4 address were unknown on the server.

I mean on the alias field in ISPConfig, I've added the address tom.robins@example.com. And in the mail it was written that tom.rob@example.com and ins@example.com were unknown. So it seems that the system has truncated these address.

I've already checked the file .forward in the user homedir but everything is fine, tom.robins@example.com was correctly written there.


What and where should I check to resolve this problem ?


Best regards,
lapena

The aliases and other email addresses are written to just one file, the file is /etc/postfix/virtusertable

thank you for replying so fast.

however I've already checked the file /etc/postfix/virtusertable, but for this address it contains only this line:
all@example.com all

and it's working for the other users, they have received my email. so I imagine that the config is fine.


sorry, in fact it's not considered as aliases but as forwards.
I want that when I send a mail to all@example.com, all the employees receive this email (so all@example.com is forwarded to all the email accounts)

Please check the .forward file in the homedir of the all@example.com account. It should contain all forward email addresses.

yeah...

that's the problem. I've already checked this .forward file and everything is file. all the addresses are here, well written, no problem.
thats' why I've posted here, because everything is fine in this file but I still receive errors for 2 address (addresses are splitted)

regards,
lapena
