    this is for information only since it is wrongly written in the manual of ISPconfig3.
    The manual says it shoud be like:
    Server: <ISPconfig server>
    Relay recipient: <[email protected] or domain.tld>

    Actually. If you want to be a backup MX for a whole domain. You should use "@domain.tld". If the @ is not included it will mention "rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table;"

    the in /etc/postfix should have:
    transport_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/
    relay_recipient_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/
    good luck everyone searching for this. I hope this gets rectified in the manual.

    Chapter, right? I've changed it to

    Relay recipient: Fill in the email address or email domain, e.g. [email protected] or

    It will be available with the next update.

    page 131,


    it should be changed on page 131. (chapter Email Routing) It has a picture where no @ is used.

    and indeed in chapter, like you said.
