Postfix relay domains, transports and virtual maps....

    here is one for the postfix guru's
    I am trying to get a perl script working that accepts emails from list via a transport.
    When I add the following lines to main.cf relay_domains=domain.of.emaillist.com
    transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport

    /etc/postfix/transport contains
    Code:
    domain.of.emaillist.com drupal:
    
    and drupal is defined in master.cf

    i do the required
    postmap /etc/postfix/transport
    and check it with
    postconf transport_maps

    then restart postfix
    and do postfix reload for good measure...

    the problem is this:
    postfix gives error 550 "Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table"
    and the mail to the list is not delivered.

    However, if I comment out the following line in main.cf
    #virtual_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtusertable

    then the email to the list goes to the proper relay "drupal" and all is well, EXCEPT that ALL regular email is lost because virtual_maps is not defined.

    So, my question is, how do I send email from a certain subdomain to the proper relay and still have all other regular mail delivered via the local relay?
    in other words, why is postfix looking in virtual_maps for email that I defined in relay_domains and transport_maps...

    what is the trick to this?
    could
    mailbox_transport = cyrus have anything to do with it?

    thanks gurus!
    ryan.

    is this the wrong place to ask?
