Postfix ignoring mailbox_command.....

Hi All,

I'm struggling with a local Solaris install of Postfix. I've installed and configured a completely vanilla setup. The only change I've made (appart from setting what to accept mail for) is:


to enable qmail style delivery.

Everything works fine when I send an email to user@localhost or even user@fullyqualifieddomain, but when I send it from another server to user@fullyqualifieddomain, Postfix seems to ignore it's config and drop the emails into the default /var/mail/user location.

Anyone have any ideas?

No, but maybe you can post the output of postconf -n and complete logs of mail to user@fullyqualifieddomain from both a local and a remote machine.
