Moving mysql databases to new server (ie, postfix)


I have very little experience with managing mysql databases and I think I am missing some very basic information.

For the first time, I am trying to migrate a site to a new VPS host. Among other things:
  • I copied my postfix and postfixadmin config files to the new server
  • I exported the relevant database, "mail", on old server, imported it into the new.
  • I also exported and imported the User table from the mysql table
Alas, postfix and postfixadmin don't work. For example, I see this in the maillog:
Nov 22 09:31:47 [host] postfix/cleanup[8807]: warning: 2974750D320: virtual_alias_maps map lookup problem for ####@##.## -- message not accepted, try again later
I missing some key aspect of migrating a configuration like this. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Maybe try rehashing the "virtual_alias_maps"?

Execute the command "postmap /etc/postfix/virtual_alias_maps" after changing (moving) the virtual file, execute "postmap /etc/postfix/vmailbox" after changing (moving) the vmailbox file, and then reload postfix.
