[postfix-users] Difference mydestination and virtual_alias_domains etc.

Dennis
Hi,

according to the book of Postfix and from my understanding the purpose
of virtual_alias_domains is exactly the same
like mydestination which is to be the final destination for the domain
names specified.

The difference is that virtual_alias_domains doesn`t need to have a
correlation to the host machine, right?
But what does that mean in practice?
Wouldn`t it be the same if i decide to set all domain names postifx is
the final destination for, in mydestination instead of
virtual_alias_domains?

I dont exactly understand the difference and whats even more confusing
for me is the difference between virtual_alias_domains &
virtual_mailbox_domains.
Maybe some Zenmaster in Postfix could enlighten me and sorry about my
stupid questions, i am still a Postfix fool but at least i try. xD

Regards

Dennis

Domains in mydestination get delivered by "local".

Domains listed in virtual_alias_domains usually use
virtual_alias_maps to map the address to ANOTHER address, which is
then delivered someplace else (maybe using "local", maybe it goes to
yet another machine)

virtual_alias_domains: just rewrite the recipient address
virtual_mailbox_domains: deliver the mails using "virtual"

Ich hätte eigentlich darauf kommen können, das ich meine Frage auch in
deutsch stellen kann, ist ja schließlich nicht das erste Mal das ich
meine Fragen auf der postifx Mailingliste stelle und dankenswerterweise
immer nette Unterstützung erfahren habe.

Da ich allerdings auf mehreren Mailinglisten unterwegs bin, war englisch
jetzt irgendwie die Macht der Gewohnheit.
In diesem Sinne, danke für die Beantwortung meiner Fragen :)
