Default postfix setup ok but extension needed

I am trying to set up something called a mail2news gateway with postfix.

I almost know what to do but just need a little push to finish off the mail2news setup.

In the details below it tells how it is done:

>If the gateway is going to provide functionality for munging From addresses, the >following aliases must be added to the mail aliases file.

>mail2news_nospam: mail2news
>mail2news_munge: mail2news

So for example say my user name is hotchilli
and mail is hotchiili@mydomain.com

So in the mail aliases file I just add the lines:

mail2news_nospam: hotchilli?
mail2news_munge: hotchilli?

and which aliases file/
/etc/aliases or
/etc/aliases.db?

so pepole can send mail via mail2news_nospam@mydomian.com
and mail2news_munge@mydomain.com

As far as I understand, you must put

Code:
mail2news_nospam: mail2news
mail2news_munge: mail2news
(without replacing anything!) into /etc/aliases and then run
Code:
newaliases
and restart Postfix.

Default postfix extensions

In my first post of the thread i said

I>f the gateway is going to provide functionality for munging From addresses, the >following aliases must be added to the mail aliases file.

what I forgot to mention was another2 lines in the instructions which reads:

>A gateway must intercept email messages destined for a special user and redirect >them to the mail2news programs. This is done using Postfix and Procmail. In the >following sections, the USER account is assumed to be mail2news.

so with this information can i assume that the line into /etc/aliases would be


mail2news_nospam: hotchilli?
mail2news_munge: hotchilli?

(assuming the user name to be hotchilli)

Yes, that's right.
