          virtual_alias_maps does not support localaccount

          if you like to use localaccount from outside, then send it to some
          other domain that is local only local

          in virtualalias support@...
          localuser@$mydestination.example.org

          then it will be delivered to unix user localuser

          keep in mind that example.org must not be listed in mydestination

          but only in virtual_domains_maps

          if its just for domains listed in mydestination use alias_maps with
          supports pipes, with is not supported in virtual

            This is a non-sequitur. The virtual alias table is an address
            rewriting table. It performs the requested rewrite.

            Virtual aliases apply to ALL recipient addresses regardless of
            the address class of the input address, and can rewrite to
            a target recipient address in any address class.

              Okay. So added these domains to mydestination and removing the vitual
              configuration all together.

              A pointer to how to not fold the local accounts?

                That is a bad idea (about as bad as wanting to have @ or space
                characters in the names), therefore it is not implemented.
