What version of Postfix are you using?
If you're planning on going for 18.104.22.168, something like the
following should work:
mydestination = domain1.com, ipostfix.domain1.com,
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
virtual_alias_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual_domains
transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
user1 at domain1.comuser1 at ipostfix.domain1.comuser1 at ixchz.domain1.com
You will need to run ``postmap(1)'' on ``/etc/postfix/virtual'' and
Mail from user1 at domain1.com goes to:
a) user1 at ipostfix.domain1.com
What you do with this is up to you from here. It's already
listed in mydestination, so Postfix will accept mail. By default,
postfix will collect mail for it in $mail_spool_directory/$username.
b) user1 at ixchz.domain1.com
There is a transport map, telling postfix to deliver mail via smtp
to the ``ip.address.of.exchange.server''
It is possible to map whole domains instead of doing this user by
user. Postfix virtual_alias_maps except @domain.com expansions
(which are the lowest precedent).
Please note also, there are considerable differences between 1.x and
2.x versions of Postfix, as well as big differences in the latest
snapshots. If you do implement this and you're still having
problems, try and specify the version you're using.
If you need help, show output from:
- postconf -n
- postconf -d mail_version
- anything else you feel necessary
