    Hi all,

    I'm encountering a configuration problem and amavis is not functioning properly when enabled. I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    This is my master.cf
    Code:
    #
    # Postfix master process configuration file.  For details on the format
    # of the file, see the master(5) manual page (command: "man 5 master").
    #
    # Do not forget to execute "postfix reload" after editing this file.

    If I uncomment the mail filter and receive line in the main.cf and then uncomment the 127.0.0.1 in the master.cf and restart postfix, messages start landing in the queue with then (mail transport unavailable). I've done some digging on this message but none of the things I've found have made any difference.

    I've verified that amavis is listening on port 10024. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Got it!

    Ok the thing I was missing was that the amavis line in the master.cf needed to also be uncommented.

    Everything appears to be working now. I'll post if I see anything else acting odd.

    Thanks!

    Ok I hit a snag.

    It works.... sorta. :)

    What I'm seeing is that if the email is a real mailbox on the server everything works, fine, however, if the email is an alias for a real mailbox, it appears as though the amavis process is trying to create a real mailbox in the /vmail directory

    So let's say we have care@mycompany.com which is an Alias for fwd_care@mycompany.com. The real folder is ./fwd_care. If I turn on spam / virus filtering on, all the mail that comes for care@propertyboss.com gets put in a newly created folder called ./care/new

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Ken
