    Email Forwarding Not Working [Fixed]

    Hi i set up email forwarding for my domain and it's not working.

    I added the email domain and i added a forwarder for that

    [email protected] -> [email protected]

    I login to HOTMAIL and send a test email to [email protected]

    postfix/smtpd[17571]: connect from[]
    postfix/smtpd[17571]: 289F4A1BA:[]
    postfix/cleanup[17575]: 289F4A1BA: message-id=
    postfix/smtpd[17571]: disconnect from[]
    postfix/qmgr[1809]: 289F4A1BA: from=, size=1746, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
    postfix/pipe[17576]: 289F4A1BA: to=, relay=maildrop, delay=0.42, delays=0.18/0.08/0/0.17, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (delivered via maildrop service)
    You see the incoming hotmail connection. The mail is not forwarded though.

    I have tried this with different destination mail services so its not just a problem with forwarding to gmail. I've read the other threads and they don't shed any light.

    This was a fresh install of Debian 5 on my linode and a fresh setup of ISPconfig following the "Perfect server" guide. There is nothing funky going on with my setup it's all plain default vanilla.

    I wonder what is happening?

    The email got delivered to a local mailbox. Make sure that you dont have a mailbox for the email address [email protected] and that you have no linux system user with the name admin2.
