    Hello. I installed and configured postfix wit courier and mysql accounts, but i have a little problem:
    When I try to send mail using postfix (i do that by telnet localhost 25) i successfully sent that mail to (for example my gmail account).
    The email actually sents and in my google mailbox i have it delivered. But when I try to reply/or to send mail to my virtual account and google tells me that:
    Does anyone have idea for this situation?

    Your configuration is not working properly the virtual users are not being recognized

    But when i try to telnet localhost 110 and i successfully login with the virtual user. The problem is that i cant get mails. Maybe its the directory for vmail users, i don't know, but definitely the users are accepted. Some ideas? Do you want output of some files?
    EDIT:
    When i try to send mail from my gmail account here comes that in mail.log:

    port 110 is pop3 port it has nothing to do with this, your postfix configuration is incorrect please post your postfix main.cf.

    my main.cf looks like this:
    and now it tries to send me mail but postfix reject it cause it comes to myself (i mean this:
    ...relay=mail.<mydomain>[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:25, delay=0.71... status=bounced (mail for mail.<mydomain> loops back to myself))

    That is because you do not have virtual_mailbox_domains

    i will try it now, hope it works
    EDIT:well its the same. I added virtual_mailbox_domains, i added table and query in file. I included the file, reloaded postfix and its the same. The only thing was that postfix warned me that i have <mydomain> in virtual_mailbox_domains and in mydestination (that means the mysql query worked) then i removed <mydomain> from mydestination and its the same. Postfix rejects mails again. I think the error is somewhere with the accepted destinations.. but i can't find it..

    I found where the error is, but i dont have any idea what to do. Here is the thing: The error comes with the database when in the postfix_transport table i have <mydomain> with destination smtp:(<mail.mydomain>/<mydomain>/[xxx.xxx.xxx]/etc) and postfix bounces the incoming mails with <the value after smtp: in my database> loops back to myself. I readed some howtos and when i change it to maildrop: and the status for the incoming mails automatically was set to sent(delivered via maildrop service) so i found where the error is. So i have two choices: to look for smtp configuration or to look for maildrop configuration.. Any ideas what to do?
