    Hello All,
    I am having an issue with aliases and forwards where the messages are not being delivered. I have noticed two things.

    First, when sending from one of the virtual accounts to an aliased account, Postfix does not recognize the account is on the box. sends an email to (which is an alias). Instead of trying to deliver the mail locally, Postfix uses the relayhost we have setup.

    Second, when I telnet to the mail server and send an email to, the mail server will accept it. However, it will deliver it to a mailbox named alias, not to bob's mailbox.

    Here is the

    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/

    Here is testing the SQL select:
    select destination from mail_forwarding where source='';
    | destination |
    | |
