Getmail configuration...

    Hello to everybody.
    I'm trying to realize a local mailserver that will connect with a dialup connection to a main mailserver.
    To send emails, I've realized an email relay with queues.
    To receive emails, I want to configure getmail on the local mailserver with a POP3 connection to the main mailserver.
    As you can see on the link http://www.howtoforge.com/debian_etch_getmail_p3, there are some configurations explained.

    The problem is that, in the local server, I've configured postfix with virtual accounts (and queries from a mysql database). The default mailbox is
    Code:
    virtual_mailbox_base = /var/vmail
    and on the main mailserver(realized with perfectserver and ISPConfig3), every time that I receive an email, I'll find it in /var/vmail/domain/user/new
    Well on this local server, I have nothing in /var/vmail and so I don't know in the getmail configuration what I've to put into [destination] section.

    Somebody may give me some good suggestions?

    Cheers
    Michele

    In this case I'd try something like this:

    Code:
    [destination]
    type = MDA_external
    path = /usr/sbin/sendmail
    arguments = ("-i", "-bm", "falko@example.com")
    unixfrom = true

    Hi Falko,
    thanks for the reply.
    I've tried what you suggest me, but it's look like the local mailserver is trying to deliver the email to the real falko@example.com and not in the local one...
    Maybe this is because I don't have configured properly postfix... (in fact I can't login with pop3...)

    Thanks
    Michele

    Hi Falko.
    Now the mailserver is ok, I can connect with POP3 and IMAP.
    I've configured getmail as you said, but, I confirm my post of before, the local mailserver it's look like it want to send the emails received to the real falko@example.com, and not to the local one...

    How is possible?

    thanks
    Michele

    Ok solved...
    I used:
    Code:
    [destination]
    type = Maildir
    path = /var/vmail/domain/user/
