    Mail not going to users, stuck in /home/vmail (postfix,mysql,courier)

    Hey all, thanks in advance for your time

    I followed this guide to setup mail on my linode:

    Everything seems to work except one thing. Mail is only sitting in /home/vmail ... I know this because with webmin i check out Postfix server->Users->vmail and there are the messages. The mail is not reaching people's inboxes. I really dont know what to do, and have been slamming my head on the desk all day.

    Please let me know if you need any more config files, and I will post right away.

    Final part of my /etc/postfix/

    I got lucky and found this... really hard to find google hits on my issue!

    added to /etc/postfix/

    mailbox_transport = virtual
    virtual_transport = virtual
