    If you followed one of the tutorials that use mysql to host virtual users and domains, you need to create a sql command and execute it with mysql or phpmyadmin. Have a look at section 13 on this page Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier, MySQL And SquirrelMail (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS) for an example of the necessary sql INSERT commands.

    i followed: http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-ubuntu8.04-lts.

    ive then follwed the howto posted by ralic (cheers ralic) and ive made the users and set up squirrel mail but when i sent an email from squirrel mail it gets returned instantly saying its 'Considered UNSOLICITED BULK EMAIL'.

    If you're not blacklisted, you should make sure that you have proper SPF and reverse records.
