    i have install a mail server using"Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL ", and i get this message in mail.log when i try to send mail
    "mailserver postfix/local[1787] 5760a390097: to <shannen@mailserver.nccmauritius.com> relay=local delay=no status = sent (delivered to command: procmail -a"$EXTENSION"

    it does not recognize users which i inserted in the table "users" and nothing appears in the directory "home/vmail", but when i send mail using debian users, mail is sent but it is in the directory "/var/mail"

    where is the problem?

    Shannen exists as a user on the system but not in the database. When i send mail from an outside mail, the user shannen receives the mail.
    The error i get in syslog is "fatal: specify a password table via the "smtp_sasl_password_maps".
    can u tell me where this file is?
    I also get the message "usr/lib/postfix/smtp:bad command startup throttling"

    System users receive their mails in /var/mail, virtual users in /home/vmail. If you want the mails to go to /home/vmail, please create the user in the users table.


    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?
    Please post the exact error messages from your mail log.
