Topic: Catchall not working with aliases

==== Provide required information ====

Hello,

We are having trouble with catchall feature. Any aliases that were in place would get sent to the catchall. For instance, xyz@example.com is an alias of abc@example.com. When we put the catchall in place if we sent to abc@example.com it went through fine but if we sent to xyz@example.com it was sent to the catchall@example.com.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Catchall not working with aliases

Please show us output of below commands to help troubleshoot. Replace 'abc@example.com' and 'xyz@example.com' below with real email addresses before executing.

# cd /etc/postfix/mysql/
# for cf in $(ls *.cf); do echo ${cf}; postmap -q 'abc@example.com' mysql:./${cf}; done
# for cf in $(ls *.cf); do echo ${cf}; postmap -q 'xyz@example.com' mysql:./${cf}; done
# postconf -n

I'm wondering how you add this kind of alias.

With iRedMail default settings, if you have a mailbox "abc@example.com", then create an alias domain "alias.com", alias mailbox "abc@alias.com" will be available automatically.

You mentions "xyz@" is an alias of "abc@", ideally, it should work as expected. May i know how you create this kind of alias? Is it just a typo error?

Here's my test on local server:

- Original domain: example.com, user: abc@example.com
- Alias domain: alias.com, alias address: abc@alias.com

Output of commands mentioned in my previous post:

# for i in $(ls *cf); do echo $i; postmap -q 'abc@example.com' mysql:./$i; done

Send an email to both abc@example.com and abc@alias.com, i can receive both testing emails in abc@'s mailbox.

I found the difference.

iRedMail default setting:

    proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/catchall_maps.cf,

You have addtion lookup map: proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql/domain_alias_maps_alias.cf. What's it?

If you find all lookup files used in iRedMail below, please make sure you have correct mysql queries in these lookup files on your server.

Re: Catchall not working with aliases

Also, you're running iRedMail-0.7.3 and iRedAdmin-Pro-MySQL-1.3.0, please upgrade both to the latest versions: iRedMail-0.8.1, iRedAdmin-Pro-MySQL-1.4.0.

If you don't have download link of the latest version of iRedAdmin-Pro-MySQL, please send an email to "support _at_ iredmail.org", we will send you one as soon as possible.

Re: Catchall not working with aliases

Thanks a lot Zhang. We shall upgrade iredmail and will replace all the lookup files with the default one. Shall get back to you after doing this.
