Default user@hostname or user@domainname

hi,
I'm using Postfix mail server (based on the howto guide by Falko). There's one thing i dont really understand:

with the virtual user, the email is in the format user@domain (e.g. user1@mydomain.net)

with the system account email has format user@hostname (e.g. www-data@mail.mydomain.net, or MAILER-DAEMON@mail.mydomain.net)

is this normal?

Of course you can make the system users have the user@domain format if you want, by adding the domain name to mydestinations.

You don't need to remove the other mydestination values.

One thing you should note is that you cannot use domains in mydestination that you already use in the domains MySQL table.

what happens if i add a domain to both?

and,
if i reply to the email user@domain.com, the message should go the the virtual mailbox created based on the domain (/var/vmail/domain.com/user for example)

if i reply to the email user@server.domain.com, so where should it go to?
