    Hi there

    My isp finally unblocked my port 25 so I'm into setting up the mail server correctly.

    My problem is that emails that should be received at [email protected] are delivered to [email protected] which is the catch-all address of my main domain ( In fact any email sent to any of my non-main domain all get transfered to that address.
