Default Postfix not delivering outcoming mails.

Hello everybody,

I 've been using Postfix there has been while and I got a complication I can't work out...

I use fedora core 8 and here is my problem:

It started yesterday after I installed postfixadmin ,for every virtual domain I host I can't anymore receive any mail from yahoo or hotmail even gmail but I can send with no problem.

Here is what I get with postconf -n:
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
command_directory = /usr/sbin
config_directory = /etc/postfix
daemon_directory = /usr/libexec/postfix
debug_peer_level = 2
header_checks = regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
html_directory = no
inet_interfaces = all
mail_owner = postfix
mailbox_command = /usr/bin/procmail
mailq_path = /usr/bin/mailq.postfix
manpage_directory = /usr/share/man
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost, $mydomain
mydomain = domain.tld
myhostname = mail.domain.tld
mynetworks =,
myorigin = $mydomain
newaliases_path = /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
queue_directory = /var/spool/postfix
readme_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.6/README_FILES
relayhost = [cni.cbinf.com]
sample_directory = /usr/share/doc/postfix-2.3.6/samples
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix
setgid_group = postdrop
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
virtual_alias_domains = likob.bi
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

Here is what I get from my mail log in /var/log/maillog when I try to send an email to a one of the virtual domain hosted on my server

NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from ey-out-1920.google.com[]: 554 5.7.1 <kobe@virtualdomain.tld>: Relay access denied; from=<kobe@gmail.com> to=<kobe@domain.tld> proto=ESMTP helo=<ey-out-1920.google.com>
Nov 17 19:38:47 mail postfix/smtpd[8757]: disconnect from ey-out-1920.google.com[]

Any help ?

I guess virtualdomain.tld should be listed under virtual_alias_domains as well.

I finally came throughout this,it is something like what you say falko.

I also noticed that virtualdomain.tld and others domains weren't listed on what I was getting with postconf-n ,and I also guessed that the messages for likob.bi were well delivered.

In main.cf ,for every virtual domain I would like to host ,I was adding those lines:

I changed this way by adding only these 2 lines:


and I created the file /etc/postfix/virtual_alias_domains
which is in this format (domain date) ,the date is not necessary.

domain1.tld 20091118
domain2.tld 20091118

Don't forget postmap hash:/etc/postfix/virtual_alias_domains and of course the postfix reload.

And it worked ,so from now on, every virtual domain I want to host I only add it in /etc/ postfix/virtual_alias_domains and I make the mappings in /etc/postfix/virtual ,followed with postmap.
