Postfix woes in a virtualised environment

    I'm having a problem with postfix.

    I have a mailserver which is called strangely enough mailserver. So

    I have two local users created on this server test1 & test 2

    I try to send a message for example from test1 to [email protected] and I get a message saying that the user is unknown in the virtual alias table. However if i send a mail to [email protected] its all fine. Does anyone have any clue at all as to why it is doing this?

    The virtual file in /etc/postfix/virtual has the following settings
    [email protected] test1
    [email protected] test2

    I'm sure it must be something fairly obvious that's wrong. All virtual machines are running on their own network, all set up without a DNS server in the network. Postfix is running on a rhel 5 server.

    Looks like I've solved it. There was an issue with the mydestinations setting. If anyone else gets stuck on this make sure you put you put the domain name down at the end of the line by itself. Also don't put the domain name down in the virtual file. It's not needed. :)
