    Email Forwarding

    I have searched to no avail. I cannot seem to figure out how to add a forward to my current setup. I used this to get it up and running, and a combo of posts to add SpamAssasin+Procmail. I have 2 domains for email, one that is actually hosted on my server and the other which is supposed to be a catch-all-and-forward.
    Here is my configs:
    POSTFIX
    main.cf
    Code:
    ## MISCsmtpd_banner = $myhostname ESMTP $mail_name (Ubuntu)
    biff = no
    append_dot_mydomain = no
    readme_directory = no
    recipient_delimiter = +
    mailbox_size_limit = 0
    
    
    ## AUTH & SECURITY
    smtpd_tls_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/dovecot.pem
    smtpd_tls_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/dovecot.pem
    smtpd_use_tls=yes
    smtpd_tls_auth_only = yes
    smtpd_sasl_type = dovecot
    smtpd_sasl_path = private/auth
    smtpd_sasl_auth_enable = yes
    smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
       permit_sasl_authenticated,
       permit_mynetworks,
       reject_unauth_destination
    
    
    ## IP ADDRESSES & DOMAIN NAMES
    myhostname = mail.twprogrammers.com
    myorigin = /etc/mailname
    mydestination = localhost
    mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8 [::ffff:127.0.0.0]/104 [::1]/128
    inet_interfaces = all

    When I send a message to say -- test@hawkladybeadery.com it bounces back with this:

    Re: Email Forwarding

    Are you sure your server is allowed to send mail to that satx.rr.com address? I have mine set up to forward mail from one of my domains to another domain but that domain is on the same mail server..

    Everything looks right to me, though.

    Try changing the alias to send it to an address on the same server and see if you get the same error back.

    I'm guessing the catchall isn't working properly.

    Ok, I just did and it went through... So... do I need to add the email to virtual_users and satx.rr.com to virtual_domains? Will try that and report tomorrow.

    Re: Email Forwarding

    The only issue I see with doing that is the mail server could accept mail for satx.rr.com, whether that is a real issue or not, I do not know.

    Well... it delivered to the void... Tried poking around in /var/mail/vhosts to see if procmail delivered it like that, but no go. Also looked @ mail logs in /var/log and it shows no sign of it being received.

    Re: Email Forwarding

    Where are the procmailrc files in this setup? With virtual users, what's the equivalent of $HOME/.procmailrc?

    The reason I ask is that you can do forwardings there as well. One solution to your problem might be to create a recipe in the system-wide /etc/procmailrc like this:
    Code:
    :0
    * ^TO.*hawkladybeardery
    ! removed@satx.rr.com
    If you ask for help, please have the courtesy to check for responses and thank the people who helped you.

    I have a folder structure in /etc/procmail/ that looks like this:
    /etc/procmail/main.rc
    /etc/procmail/spam.rc
    /etc/procmail/filters/$USER/pre.rc
    /etc/procmail/filters/$USER/post.rc

    In main.rc it makes the declarations of $USERNAME and $DELIVER then INCLUDERC=/etc/procmail/filters/$USER/pre.rc then INCLUDERC=/etc/procmail/spam.rc then INCLUDERC=/etc/procmail/filters/$USER/post.rc then delivers everything else to the inbox with $DELIVER -u $USERNAME
    Some of the above may be inaccurate as I am not looking at the rc file at this very moment, however I think I got it.

    I will try this in a few minutes and update my post.

    Update:
    Using the above it delivered it to the 'void'. Not sure what is going on there... nothing shows in the logs, not even postfix's. The MX records seem to be in proper order. I guess now I just wait for it to cough up at me with a post master error. :-/
