Interesting Mail Problem

    I hadn't noticed this until now and it's an interesting problem with Postfix...

    I have a few sites on my system. Two of the sites have a user name of "jim". So that makes user names like web1_jim and web2_jim.

    The interesting part is all mail for web2_jim is going to web1_jim.

    Now, what I THINK is happening is Postfix isn't doing a complete domain name check on the user names. I say this because both domain names are identical in size and start with the same word. Something like mashersock.com and masherhost.com.

    So you'd have

    [email protected] web1_jim
    [email protected] web2_jim

    So, like I said it seems to be matching the first "[email protected]" and deliverying mail there.

    Any ideas?

    Not really. Nobody is configured as a catch all and it's only those two addresses that deliver improperly. All others deliver correctly.

    What's in /etc/postfix/local-host-names and /etc/postfix/virtusertable?
