    ISPConfig has been working well, but I've juste noticed a little problem with email alias.
    I've created a new user "[email protected]" and in the "Alias" field I've added all email accounts in the domain (about 100).

    I've sent yesterday an email to [email protected], I thought it was fine till I've received a mail telling me that 4 address were unknown on the server.

    I mean on the alias field in ISPConfig, I've added the address [email protected]. And in the mail it was written that [email protected] and [email protected] were unknown. So it seems that the system has truncated these address.

    I've already checked the file .forward in the user homedir but everything is fine, [email protected] was correctly written there.

    What and where should I check to resolve this problem ?

    Best regards,

    The aliases and other email addresses are written to just one file, the file is /etc/postfix/virtusertable

    thank you for replying so fast.

    however I've already checked the file /etc/postfix/virtusertable, but for this address it contains only this line:
    [email protected] all

    and it's working for the other users, they have received my email. so I imagine that the config is fine.

    sorry, in fact it's not considered as aliases but as forwards.
    I want that when I send a mail to [email protected], all the employees receive this email (so [email protected] is forwarded to all the email accounts)

    Please check the .forward file in the homedir of the [email protected] account. It should contain all forward email addresses.

    that's the problem. I've already checked this .forward file and everything is file. all the addresses are here, well written, no problem.
    thats' why I've posted here, because everything is fine in this file but I still receive errors for 2 address (addresses are splitted)
