    Default [SOLVED] Forwarding some mail off the server

    Hello!

    I have a mailman list on another server. The different domain on the email address is difficult for some users and I want to setup an address on the primary domain to just blindly forward over to the mailing list. I've tried setting up a sendmail 8 style aliases file, making the database with postalias and appending it as a hash to the postfix_alias_map line, but all I get is "mail transport unavailable" when I try to send an email to this new address. Where have I gone wrong?

    Thanks!

    Create the account in your primary domain and set the option for that account to forward all mail to anywhere you like.

    Creating an account burns a license which I don't think is nessessary. It's just postfix at the core, shouldn't there be a way to forward one address out to another machine?

    Create a single member distribution list. I don't think it has any affect on the licence, but I'm not sure.

    I think that the alias file should allow forwarding to foreign domains but currently it doesn not.
