Default Postfix Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table

I am running version 2.2.29 of ISP Config.
I followed the instructions for The Perfect Server using Ubuntu 8.4 LTS server.
I thought postfix was working, but I was not really using it. I have new IP's and a new router. Configuring it to forward to my server and testing, I found that my email was not working.

My host is set up independant as hostdomain.com. I have 3 virtual domains on this server virtual1.com virtual2.com virtual3.com.

When I send an email to joesmith@virtual2.com, I get a 550 error that states web2_joe@hostdomain.com does not exist.

I looked at the virtusertable and for every virtual domain there exists a joesmith and a web2_joe, but it appears to only look for the hostdomain.com.

What am I missing?

Any errors in your mail log? What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?
