Default Postfix with virtual users: distribution groups?


I installed on a CentOS server the following: dovecot, postfix and postfixadmin with MySQL users.

I used PostfixAdmin for adding domains, mailboxes and aliases, but I cannot see any option for distribution groups / lists. Is there a way to do this and store them in MySQL too?

And (since I am here ) another question: I can't see in my PostfixAdmin web interface the mailboxes I create for a specific domain. I have "Mailboxes: 5 / 10" for example, if I search for a keyword, the mailboxes are found, but /list-virtual.php does not show the list as expected. That script worked a few days ago.

Distribution groups are done by using aliasses. for example

user1@domain.com is a mailbox
user2@domain.com is a mailbox

info@domain.com is an alias that points to user1@domain.com
info@domain.com is an alias that points to user2@domain.com

so your actually creating 2 aliasses in this case, 1 for each mailbox you want to deliver it to.
