    Default /etc/aliases ?

    Hello All,

    We're using 508 Open Source Edition now, and we are trying to
    import /etc/aliases file from existing postfix server.
    However, it looks like not working...

    this is what I've done :

    # as root
    cd /etc
    rm aliases*
    ln -s /opt/zimbra/postfix/conf/aliases aliases
    vi /etc/aliases (add our own existing alias)
    /opt/zimbra/postfix/sbin/newalias

    We don't have any special script in our /etc/aliases file, just
    simple email aliases.

    Any advice on this?
    Thanks.
    Rgds,
    Kevin

    Zimbra uses /etc/aliases and /etc/aliases.d itself so your earlier configuration should work without doing any of this.

    It just doesn't work for me.
    e.g. in the original /etc/aliases, I add such line :

    class08: s101, s102, s103

    and then run a newaliaes command to create the DB.

    going back to Web client, when sending to class08@my.domain,
    I got Undelivered Mail immediately.

    Did I miss something ?
    any comment is highly appreciated. thanks.
