At last something i know something about!
I recently installed postfix on my SuSE system. I had to run a command called (my
memory is ailing) postaliases or postalias, and i may have had to give the path to
the file: eg:
I think you can work it out after that (If i have understood the problem).
Incidentally, when installed from SuSE, postfix also needs this extra configuration
(SuSEconfig does not seem to do it automatically, maybe it is to do with
Furthermore, when you change any postfix config files (like virtual, or whatever)
remember to do "postmap virtual". Changes take effect in about a minute (or straight
away if you do "postfix reload"
If that does not solve problems, then sorry for getting hopes up,
(also IMVHO postfix is a nice mailer)
