    You can not use a domain in /etc/mailname that is used to receive emails in a postfix virtualuser setup. Thats why the perfect setup guide instructs you to use and not

    Please edit /etc/mailname and change:


    and restart postfix.

    mydestination =, localhost, localhost.localdomain
    Your problem is that line right there.

    Remove your domain from there and it will work. I just fixed the problem myself :D
