    I am running version 2.2.29 of ISP Config.
    I followed the instructions for The Perfect Server using Ubuntu 8.4 LTS server.
    I thought postfix was working, but I was not really using it. I have new IP's and a new router. Configuring it to forward to my server and testing, I found that my email was not working.

    My host is set up independant as I have 3 virtual domains on this server

    When I send an email to [email protected], I get a 550 error that states [email protected] does not exist.

    I looked at the virtusertable and for every virtual domain there exists a joesmith and a web2_joe, but it appears to only look for the

    The email is being rewrittin as the [email protected] which ther is no user.

    What am I missing?

    This is absoluetely ok as web2_joe is a system user, so it does exist in /etc/passwd and not the virtusertable. The problem is most likely that is not in the local-host-names file. Please add it at the end of the file and restart postfix.

    Thank you Till,

    I looked at the local-host-names I saw many variations of in the file..... but not one just for the I added it to the bottom of the file and the email was received.

    Now on to the next problem... only 2 of the 3 domains are making it to the server. so now I need to find the routing problems.

    Thanks again.

    What is not working (web, mail?) and for which domain? The domain of the host or a virtual domain?

    I have most everything working now, except I have one problem.

    Out of three domains on a server, one will not rebuild the virtusertable. I have three hosts on each domain, blank, www, and mail. Only the www shows for the one domain. I have tried making changes, even to the email name, but the old one stays in the virtusertable.

    Help pleas!
