    Hi, I know I've read about this sometime ago but can't find the topic anywhere.

    I have a small issue,
    In latest ispconfig I setup a domain and some mailboxes.
    Then add an alias domain.

    The problem is, that if I telnet to server port 25 and try to send an email to inexistent account, using the domain of the account the mail isn't accepted by the mailserver, but if I use the virtual domain, email gets accepted, and later generating a bounce email.
    This is giving me some headache with several backscatter emails.

    Is there a workaround for this?
    user = ispconfig
    password = *******************
    dbname = dbispconfig
    table = mail_forwarding
    select_field = destination
    where_field = source
    additional_conditions = and active = 'y' and server_id = 1
    hosts =

    Personally I use email aliases instead of domain aliases for that reason.
