Postfix Aliases & Active Directory


hi there,

i'm looking at setting up a mail server to run with postfix & Active directory

i've got two scripts at the moment, one that gets all the usernames from Active directory and one that gets all the e-mail aliases from active directory.

aliases - http://www.geocities.com/evilperson8...adalias_pl.txt

username - http://www.geocities.com/evilperson8...sername_pl.txt

now once they have pulled down all this information the deposit it in two text files

/etc/postfix/aliases
/etc/postfix/usernames

i have used winbind to join the Active directory network and the /etc/pam.d/dovecot looks like this

auth sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so likeauth nullok
auth required pam_listfile.so onerr=fail file=/etc/postfix/usernames item=user sense=allow
auth sufficient pam_winbind.so

account required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so
account sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_localuser.so
account sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_succeed_if.so uid < 100 quiet
account required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_permit.so

password requisite /lib/security/$ISA/pam_cracklib.so retry=3
password sufficient /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so nullok use_authtok
password required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_deny.so

session required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_limits.so
session required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so
auth required /lib/security/$ISA/pam_deny.so

it is allows local accounts to login and any active directory account that is also in the /etc/postfix/usernames (because we only want certain accounts to have e-mail accounts)

the file format of the /etc/postfix/aliases is

firstname.lastname: username

then in the /etc/postfix/main.cf file the following editations have been made

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/etc/postfix/aliases

inet_interfaces = all

that is it.

the default MTA has been changed

alternatives --config mta

but now when i send and e-mail it seams to go nowhere?

below is a cut out of the

/var/logs/maillog file
