      The goal is a "virtual only" mailserver, so the domains is stored
      in MySQL and fetched through virtual_mailbox_domains. Besides
      virtual_mailbox_domains, I use virtual_mailbox_maps and

      The documentation is among the best documentation I have seen, but I
      can't seem to find the solution, even though I have read most of what I
      could find in relation to virtual handling.

      One more "clue" is the error messages when sending to non-existent
      users. When sending to aptget.dk Postfix responds with
      "550 5.1.1 <non_existent@...>: Recipient address rejected: User
      unknown in virtual mailbox table".

      When sending to cogky.dk the response is only "<non_existent@...>:
      user unknown"

      Thank you for your time, Titanus
