I am still stumped on this issue. I turned on verbose messages in master.cf and still cant find why it comes up with invalid user. According to the logs, it does correctly associate the forwarding address with the original recipient.

As near as I can tell, it may be trying to send to a local mailbox with the forwarding address, which of course won't be found, instead of sending it out to the mailhost of the forwarding address domain.

Any help would be appreciated - Thanks!

I have no Idea at the moment what might cause this on your system. Maybe you should consider to do just a plain reinstall of a minimal linux system and then follow the installation instructions for ispconfig 3.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

I built a new system, and had the same issue. After some googling, I found a fix.

There is an issue with clamav on Debian with the stable version. You need to reinstall clamav from Debian volatile:

Add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://volatile.debian.org/debian-volatile etch/volatile main contrib non-free

apt-get update
apt-get remove clamav
apt-get install clamav
/etc/init.d/postfix restart

Mail forwarding and clamav now work properly on both of my ISPConfig boxes. Thanks for your help Tim!

Perhaps my findings will help someone else who is using Debian.
