    Hi everybody,

    when using SuSE 9.3 (Postfix mail server) and trying to send an email to a regular account everything is fine. When trying to send this email to an alias email, I get this:

    Mail Delivery System <[email protected]> προς εμένα
    Περισσότερες επιλογές 1:05 μμ (0 λεπτά πριν)

    This is the Postfix program at host

    I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
    be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.

    For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

    If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
    delete your own text from the attached returned message.

    The Postfix program

    Let's see if this email is going to be delivered!!


    I'm sure that /etc/aliases and /etc/postfix/virtusertable files are OK!
    Any ideas?

    Thank you all,

    Please add this at the end of your mydestination variable in postfix and restart postfix:

    If your mydestination variable points to a file like "mydestination = /etc/postfix/local-host-names" you will have to add "" in a new line at the end of this file.
