    A few days ago i upgraded my ispconfig installation. Everything was working fine, but now the email aliases and forwards do not work anymore.

    Actually they work, but really strange. For example: i create a new email address and it works just fine. Then, i create an email alias for the recently created email and it does not work as an alias, it works as a normal email address, has its own directory in /var/vmail/ and the e-mail get deliverd in that folder.

    The same sittuation happens for email forward. The emails get deliverd but not forwarded.

    If you need any logs just let me know, because i've looked and there's nothing there that helped me.

    As i said before, the mails are delivered to the maildir even if the e-mail is created as alias, forward or normal account.

    Right now we have all our aliases as normal e-mail, but it's a pain checking all of them.
