I am trying to figure out where to start hunting down odd issues I am seeing with aliases between postfix.admin and my postfix setup. I can find where most the flatfile alias files are… I am new to admining this stuff totally and I had a few questions:
If I change an alias flat file do I have to reload said file or will postfix pick it up? (it doesn’t seem too).
for instance: my /etc/postfix/main.cf has this in it:
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/aliases/system.v, hash:/usr/local/aliases/lists.v, hash:/usr/local/aliases/users.v, hash:/usr/local/aliases/test.v, hash:/usr/local/aliases/misc.v,
Inside misc.v has an entry I was searching and searching for in postfix admin in the webinterface, and couldnt find.
firstname.lastname@example.org user1, user2, user3, myself
myself to the list, and then sent a test email to email@example.com and didn’t seem to receive it?
That was one thing I noticed.
The other thing is in postfix.admin we have aliases (firstname.lastname@example.org does not show up with the users user1,user2, user3, myself)…that is fine they seem separate.
But on the postfixadmin -> virtual list -> aliases on the web I have another list:
which has a ton of users in it, they all get emails when someone sends it to email@example.com but I do not (even though firstname.lastname@example.org) is definitely in the list.
I can even create another alias:
email@example.com through the web and that works, just the above
firstname.lastname@example.org with many users in it does not ever send to
email@example.com, I am not sure why that list wont let me receive email when someone sends to that list.
So trying to slowly learn this and figure out where the disconnect seems to be on how postfix is setup on the server, and how postfix.admin is talking to it (or in this case not). I am totally puzzled as to why I do not get an email when someone sends something to
firstname.lastname@example.org, which is an alias list of about 25 others, yet if someone sends something to
I get the email just fine. email@example.com is in both lists.
