    Hi there!

    I had to replace my former postfix mail server under linux mandrake 8 ( hacked)
    to an up to date postfix under debian ETCH.
    parameters doesn't seems to exactly the same as before.
    After a few solved problem, I have been able to run the mail server,
    that is getting the emails and sending them.
    The trouble is that alias doesn't work nor forwarding using .forward files in users homes.
    I have an aliases file, and an aliases.db file made using postalias aliases

    my file is this:

    # See /usr/share/postfix/ for a commented, more complete version

    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Debian/GNU)
    biff = no

    # appending .domain is the MUA's job.
    append_dot_mydomain = no

    # Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
    delay_warning_time = 4h

    # TLS parameters
    smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtpd_scache
    smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache

    # See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
    # information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.

    myhostname =


    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
    alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases

    mydestination = $myhostname, $mydomain,localhost.$mydomain,localhost

    mailbox_command = procmail -a "$EXTENSION"
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    recipient_delimiter = +
    inet_interfaces = all

    my alias file like this:

    pierre.clergeot: pclergeot
    michel.kasser: kasser
    jean-marc.baca: jmbaca
    andre.balandier: balandier
    isabelle.benibri: benibri


    Any Idea of what's happening? solution?

    Did you run
    and restart Postfix after you've modified /etc/aliases?
    Any errors in the mail log?
