Default Emaildomain Alias

Hi,

i found something interesting thing maybe a bug.
if you set up an email alias ( mailalias.com to maildomain.com) the mail server accept all emails wich is sent to @mailalias.com (like "randomchars"@mailalias.com). it puts in to the folder. you cannot login and delete them because no box associated to the address only the servr accept that. only through ssh.
Did anybody noticed that? i did something wrong? it is a bug?

best
Zoltan

This issue has been fixed in ispconfig 3.0.x if I remember correctly by disabling the automatic creation of mailboxes for incoming emails, so it should not occur in the current ispconfig version. Which ISPConfig version do you use and is this server use dovecot or courier?

Hi,

i use the latest version. i update if the web says it is a new version. 3.0.4.5.
where can i disable the automatic creation of incomming mails?
now i see something like this in the mailq

84A75400AF 4746 Mon May 21 17:50:22 MAILER-DAEMON
(temporary failure. Command output: /usr/bin/maildrop: Unable to create a dot-lock at /var/vmail/opsz.net/fxpaem/7169.0.www.halycomp.hu.)
fxpaem@opsz.net
why do accept postfix mail for fxpaem@opsz.net if there isn't such a mailbox.
opsz.net is an alias for opsz.hu if i send an email to fxpaem@opsz.hu it it says there isnt such a mailbox. if i send an email to fxpaem@opsz.net it accept it and stuck in the mailq.
so i think there is a little problem with the maildomain aliases. or not?
i use courier, but it is the imap and pop3 daemon for handling incomming and outgoing mail the smtp server is postfix.

best Zoltan

Thats ok, it is the message about the rejection of the email, no new mailbox is created for this message. This is specific to courier as courier setups as courier does not notice postfix correctly that there is no such mailbox.

If you want a direct reject by postfix, then use email aliases and not domain aliases.

Is it normal that these messages remain in the queue?

Try to set:

soft_bounce = yes

in postfix main.cf.

I read that "postfix soft_bounce = yes" has drawbacks (not send rejecting mails). Better not use it (in my case). Thanks and regards, Manuel
