Virtual Domains With Postfix and MailScanner - forwardings "eaten"

    Ok, this one has me stumped. I recently upgraded my mail server according to the CentOS/MailScanner/Postfix tutorial (with some side steps to disable amavis and all the older cruft). Everything works well EXCEPT:

    1. If I send an email to [email protected], it is received.

    2. If I send an email to [email protected] (which is a shorthand forwarding to [email protected], much as [email protected] would be a forwarding for [email protected]), it gets "eaten".

    Ok, I should define eaten a little better. It clears MailScanner just fine, but for some reason postfix/qmgr lists "bounced" with the reason of "unknown user". It almost looks as if it's trying to deliver it locally instead of checking the virtual recipient tables in mysql...

    But, why would this happen only for forwards/aliases and not mailboxes? It's the same set of mysql tables/access...

    Can you post the exact error message from the mail log?
    What's in /etc/postfix/main.cf?

    Weirdly, it now works. I'm still getting the occasional spam message (I need to read how to train mailscanner for false negatives, whereas false positives seems to be easy enough).

    Below is an example of a message that bounced, then one that did not with no more than a simple restart (I didn't make any config changes). The only difference other than the bounce that I see is that MailScanner apparently did not report success logging the message.

    Here's one that bounced:

    Now the only other comment I have is that those last few options appeared to be added by another admin and I am not sure why. I commented them out during my upgrade, but I didn't think any of them seemed to be at fault for what was happening.

    Edit: Ok, I take that back - no_address_mappings seems to be a legacy setting from mailman and/or amavis. According to the postfix site:

    Code:
    no_address_mappings
        Disable canonical address mapping, virtual alias map expansion, address masquerading, and automatic BCC (blind carbon-copy) recipients. This is typically specified BEFORE an external content filter.
    Could this be what was causing it? Since MailScanner isn't an "external" content filter persay (not sure where it inserts itself into the process, to be honest), this option seems to be what would fubar it. I just want to make sure as there's talk of upgrading the hardware and I might have to do this all again!

    Thanks!
