      Removing the alias resolved most of my issues and I can figure out the rest!

      Subject: Debugging .forward-* files

      Hi all,

      I have a trouble ticket system (RT) that I am trying to get Postfix to work with. Currently I have a user www whose home directory is filled with lots of .forward files in the format .forward-queue where queue is the name of th RT queue, however I can't get Postfix to utilise these files.

      My main.cf file has the following in it:

      recipient_delimiter = -
      forward_path =
         $home/.forward${recipient_delimiter}${extension}
         ${extension?$home/.forward-default}
         ${extension:$home/.forward}

      As far as I understand it this means that when an email is sent to www-mail@tt0 Postfix should look in the home directory of the www user for the .forward-mail file and act on its contents.

      What is happening is all emails are being forwarded to root@tt0 instead.

      If I run "sendmail -bv www-mail@tt0" I get:
      Mail Delivery Status Report will be mailed to <root>.

      How else can I debug this or get it sorted?
