Postfix - Virtual Database

I have two domains, I want to have the emails goto the specified user and if they dont exist to send to the catch-all mail account.

This works for one domain but not the other. Im totally baffled. I am doing postmap /etc/postfix/virtual after writing.

This is my virtual file...

# Virtual domains virtualdomain virtualdomain

# Virtual user maps jmiller hnicol mwerner mfleming

# Virtual catch-all maps apalmer
As soon as I add...

Code: apalmer
All mail comes to me (apalmer). If I do...

Code: apalmer
Then map a new user to that domain, mail goes to that user. Anything else goes to me. Just how I want it.


Figured it out. Postfix knows is its own domain. It didnt like me to make a virtual domain with the same name. Change postfix to think its own domain name is localhost. Fixed.
