    I did a quick search and did not stumble on similar issue.

    I've set up a email service on my server by following this guide.
    I am using Ubuntu system.

    Recently, my server's mail service stopped working suddenly and after going thru
    the configuration and doing it from the scratch, I still have a problem.

    Instead of forwarding the mail to /mail/vmail (virtual mailbox),
    it get's delivered to /var/mail/<username>.

    Here's the my file for postfix.

    # Debian specific:  Specifying a file name will cause the first
    # line of that file to be used as the name.  The Debian default
    # is /etc/mailname.
    #myorigin = /etc/mailname
    smtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
    biff = no
    # appending .domain is the MUA's job.
    append_dot_mydomain = no
    # Uncomment the next line to generate "delayed mail" warnings
    #delay_warning_time = 4h
    # TLS parameters
    smtpd_tls_cert_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.cert
    smtpd_tls_key_file = /etc/postfix/smtpd.key
    smtpd_use_tls = yes
    smtpd_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtpd_scache
    smtp_tls_session_cache_database = btree:${queue_directory}/smtp_scache
    # See /usr/share/doc/postfix/TLS_README.gz in the postfix-doc package for
    # information on enabling SSL in the smtp client.
    myhostname = <cencored>.com
    mydestination = <cencored>.com, localhost, localhost.localdomain
    mynetworks =
    virtual_alias_domains =
    virtual_alias_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/, mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_domains = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_base = /home/vmail
    virtual_uid_maps = static:5000
    virtual_gid_maps = static:5000
    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    broken_sasl_auth_clients = yes
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions = permit_mynetworks, permit_sasl_authenticated, reject_unauth_destination
    transport_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_create_maildirsize = yes
    virtual_mailbox_extended = yes
    virtual_mailbox_limit_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/
    virtual_mailbox_limit_override = yes
    virtual_maildir_limit_message = "The user you are trying to reach is over quota"
    virtual_overquota_bounce = yes
    proxy_read_maps = $local_recipient_maps $mydestination $virtual_ali
    as_maps $virtual_alias_domains $virtual_mailbox_maps $virtual_mailb
    ox_domains $relay_recipient_maps $relay_domains $canonical_maps $se
    nder_canonical_maps $recipient_canonical_maps $relocated_maps $tran
    sport_maps $mynetworks $virtual_mailbox_limit_maps
    content_filter = amavis:[]:10024
    receive_override_options = no_address_mappings

    NOTE: Due to my horrible copy pasta, it might seem that some lines are on multiple lines when they are supposed to be on one line.

    I'm pretty much clueless here.

    Any help you can offer is HIGHLY appriciated.

    What's in /var/log/mail.log when this happens?
    Is the domain of your virtual users listed in mydestination in your If so, remove it from there and restart Postfix.

    Oh god, what a silly mistake I did. Followed the guide too much, since it said I should add my domain to that part. Well, removing it worked, obviously.

    Thank you so much! ~kiss

    Maybe you should add this to the tutorial. Found some more (a lot) people who are having the same problem,.. but this just works! :)
