    I have a mailuser "web13_callback" with the e-mail address "[email protected]" and the alias "[email protected]". The servers fqdn is "server1.domain.tld".

    I have no problems to receive mails on the "normal" way from outside. It's also no problem to write an e-mail as root with "mailx [email protected]".
    But when I redirect root's mails to [email protected] in the /etc/aliases then Postfix bounces it:
    Jan 13 10:52:05 srv002 postfix/local[20613]: 356AA51836E: to=<[email protected]>, orig_to=<root>, relay=local, delay=0.1, delays=0.09/0/0/0.01, dsn=5.1.1, status=bounced (unknown user: "callback")
    I don't know why it cuts off the domain part, but I tried to forward root's mails to "[email protected]" what works:
    Jan 13 11:23:35 srv002 postfix/local[24320]: EBAD351836E: to=<[email protected]>, orig_to=<root>, relay=local, delay=0.09, delays=0.08/0.01/0/0, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered to maildir)
    I know I can use "web13_callback" in the /etc/aliases and I do. But I propose to fix this buggy behavior.
