    I am having issues forwarding emails received to virtual user accounts. The log shows the messages are received and forwarded, but I am not receiving the forwarded emails. I have scoured the forums trying to find if there is a fix for the issue, but I haven't come up with a solution.

    I have made sure my mail server is not backlisted, which it is not. The server sends and receives email without issues. I appreciate any insight/answers.

    Here is an example of the server receiving the email to the virtual user account and forwarding it to my gmail account.
    Code:

    virtual users table
    Code:
    user@www.domain.com    domain.com_user
    domain.com_user@www.domain.com    domain.com_user
    user@domain.com    domain.com_user
    domain.com_user@domain.com    domain.com_user

    ok, I found something that could be related to the error.

    I sent a test email from another virtual user account which correctly forwarded through postfix and was received by 3 accounts. Each account showed the email was sent from xxxx@example.com.

    Apparently I must have missed something some where.

    Are you trying to forward to external addresses, or also to addresses that are on the same server?

    What's in your main.cf? (Are you using ISPConfig?)

    Yes, I am trying to forward both internally and externally. And, yes, I am using ispconfig.

    main.cf
    Code:

    Thanks for the help.

    And which ones do not arrive? The forwards to the internal or to the external addresses, or both?

    Do you have SPF records for your domains?
