    Hello, I've got a working ispconfig 3 (I believe, still kind of new so haven't tested everything yet). I've configured mailman on a few different servers so I'm not a total novice at this.

    My server is named and for mailing lists I like to use as the domain. I've set up mailman to receive email for using the web ui.

    I've then installed the mailman .deb file and created the mailman list. I've also created a separate list. I've added the normal options to /etc/alias and run newaliases.

    To test I telnet smtp and talk to the mda. I get this response to the rcpt command:

    550 5.1.1 <[email protected]>:Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table
    I don't fully understand how ispconfig has postfix configured for looking up addresses from the mysql database. Is there something I can do to make this work? I'm not sure why the aliases table is being disregarded, normally it is always consulted.

    I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 Server, fully updated with the most recent ISPConfig 3.

    ISPConfig uses the standard virtual user setup as described in the postfix documentation. The aliases file can not be used in a virtual user setup as postfix does not read it for virtual users and domains, the aliases file is only read for setups with linux system users.

    ok, got it. Any tips on what I can do to get mail delivered to mailman with this setup? With ispconfig 2 I used this technique (putting the lists in /etc/aliases).
