    Hello,
    I have an ispc3.2.6 conf with ubuntu20.04 server.
    I try to set manually domain alias.
    I build a firt domain domain.com and a second domain domain.tech (2 different clients)
    I create email : [email protected]
    I try to send a mail to [email protected] but I didn't receive that mail in [email protected] email box...
    Should I create an email [email protected] ?
    many thanks

    i don't think you can create a domain alias between different clients.
    i'd be surprised if you could actually, considering the possible security implications.
    but if you're trying to send email from *@domain.com to a domain.tech address, then yes, you'll need an email address on the domain.tech domain, whether that's a full mailbox, mailforward, catchall (basically a wildcard mailforward), or alias.

    Currently, domain "Alias" doesn't work.
    I didn't set up email addess for domain.tech. I understand I should create one.
    I'll test that.

    What is quite strange is that when I send a email to [email protected], postfix doesn't reply there is no destination email...

    The mail log should show you in detail what happens with that email.

    This is correct, you cannot create a domain alias under one client for a domain that belongs to a different client.

    Do you confirm I need to create mail address : domain.com and domain.tech + domain alias ?

    yes and email forward works.
    my idea was to run domain alias...
    I though I can save email address creation with domain alias. but seems not to be the case ?

    Then you must create both domains under the same client.

    I did and it works very well without creating twice an address : only domail.com is enough !
    thanks a lot :)
