in this file only u have to give specific user's id /etc/postfix/virtual

in main.cf file, see the below bold sentence which call the /etc/postfix/virtual file.
virtual_alias_domains = sharadchhetri.com
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual


I hope in virtual_alias_domains parameter you have single domain. not multiple domain is listed.

It will not affect other account, it only affect the account which u specify in /etc/postfix/virtual

sharadchhetri, could you possibly use spaces in your distribution list please? It's breaking the page layout otherwise. Also, please avoid "SMS" speak (e.g. "u" instead of "you") per the LQ rules.
