Postfix mail delivery issue


Hello

I am setting up a SuSE 8.2 server with SuSEfirewall2, DHCPD, and Postfix. I am currently running a SuSE8.0 server on another server with a similar config, so I am not completely at a loss...

My problem is that I am only receiving mails to
"user@mail.domain.se" (which is also the hostname) and to
"user@virtualdomain.be" and to
"user@mail.virtualdomain.be".

In other words, I don't get mails to
"user@domain.se", which is the most important.

Local delivery of mails to "user@domain.se" works fine.

The forwarding set up in /etc/aliases works fine:
Mails to "user@virtualdomain.be" are forwarded to "user@domain.se" and to user@hotmail.com. (As intended.)

In /etc/main.cf the parameters are set to:
myhostname = mail.domain.se
mydomain = domain.se
mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, $mydomain,
www.$mydomain, ftp.$mydomain, mail.virtualdomain.be,
virtualdomain.be

Grateful for any help. Thanks in advance.

/Niclas

Hi again

I forgot to post the error message I get when sending from Hotmail:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

Did you update the virtual db and the aliases after you made the changes to the respective control files?

Yes, with postmap /etc/postfix/virtual and postmap /etc/aliases and then postfix reload. I have even rebooted the server.

Mind that the virtual domain is working, local delivery is working and delivery to user@mail.domain.se is working.

Could it be a question of user rights? (Ie, should I have "su":ed user "postfix" and created any folders eg?)

Thanks anyway

I meant "newaliases". Yes, done that.

Problem solved

It seems that my DNS provider by mistake set the MX record to one of their own servers. This evening I will know if this is all of the solution to the problem.

Still the newbie...
