    Hello, it's me again.
    I configured my Debian Etch server with postfix, courier, mysql and phpMyAdmin, and it seems to work (it's not in service, yet), but I need another thing.

    I have some email addresses (like [email protected], [email protected], etc) that I would only to forward mail to other users, without having a mailbox of its own (see, they should work like distribution lists).

    I searched in Courier Docs, but I found nothing that can help me...

    How can I obtain what I need (if possible)?

    thanks in advance,

    you may realize this with the virtual adress mapping, check your /etc/postfix/virtual to make redirections from mailadresses to mailboxes.

    Sorry, I can't do this...

    I read this line in Postfix documentation:

    NEVER list a virtual alias domain name as a mydestination domain!

    ... and, another thing, I have 3 domains, all of them with their own [email protected], [email protected], etc, do you think virtual aliases and virtual users on a DB can coexist?

    Forwarding is explained in this tutorial:

    OK, OK, I was wrong reading the howto... I read that when I use forwardings the "forwarded" emails receive "a copy" of the email... I interpreted it as "the source keeps the email and sends a copy to all its forwarding addresses.

    Great. I'm at least OK, now... just to add alias domains (.it is alias for .com), test all the stuff and I'm done.

    Thanks for help!
