    I put a new one below where it says make manual entries below, but no luck. Do I need to restart anything?

    Whenever you modify /etc/postfix/virtusertable, you must run
    Code:
    postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    and restart Postfix.

    =/ No luck.

    I did:

    Code:
    sudo postmap /etc/postfix/virtusertable
    and then:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/postfix restart
    and in the /etc/postfix/virtusertable I put:

    Code:
    bswinnerton    mysite.com_bswinnerton
    What did I do wrong?

    The format of /etc/postfix/virtusertable is
    Code:
    email_address username
    e.g.
    Code:
    [email protected] username

    So does that mean that I cannot have

    bswinnerton mydomain.com_bswinnerton

    ?
