Postfix transport map and regular expressions


Hi All,

I have a RH 8 server running Postfix. Postfix is running as an inbound mail gateway, relaying to several back-end servers. The problem I'm having is trying to get Regular Expressions working on the email addresses in the transport map file.

I'm trying to distribute load across the back-end servers by having email addresses mapped like this:

aXXXXXX@mydomain.com smtp:[backendserver1.mydomain.com]
bXXXXXX@mydomain.com smtp:[backendserver2.mydomain.com]
cXXXXXX@mydomain.com smtp:[backendserver3.mydomain.com]
etc...


I can test the transport file by running:

postmap -q - regexp:/etc/postfix/transport < /etc/postfix/textfile_w_addresses.txt

This works perfectly and will return the correct mapping.


It does not work when applied to the Postfix server. The server simply defaults to the main domain name and bounces the email because it points at itself.

Here is what my transport map file looks like:

/^[aA].*mydomain.com/ smtp:[backendserver1.mydomain.com]
/^[bB].*mydomain.com/ smtp:[backendserver2.mydomain.com]
/^[cC].*mydomain.com/ smtp:[backendserver3.mydomain.com]
etc...

Thanks in advance!
Martin
