Hi

I have upgraded from 0.9.6 to 0.9.7 on a new server and migrated the DB and user mailbox as per the instructions on the Documentation site, including how to set up the Catchall domain records for 0.9.7 which uses the forwarding tables.

My issue is that when I set the record active, it sends all emails to the catchall account including those that are for real users in the domain. 

  • My Alias Table is empty

  • My Alias_domain Table has 1 entry with the Alias_domain and Target_Domain set to the same value (My Domain)

  • My Forwardings Table has 5 entries 4 for specific user forwards and the domain record. Note the Domain record is currently set to not active.

Forwardings Table

|1|postmaster@somedomain.com|ian@somedomain.com|somedomain.com|somedomain.com|0|1|0|1
|3|root@somedomain.com|ian@somedomain.com|somedomain.com|somedomain.com|0|1|0|1
|4|root@smtp.somedomain.com|ian@somedomain.com|somedomain.com|somedomain.com|0|1|0|1
|5|@somedomain.com|ian@somedomain.com|somedomain.com|somedomain.com|0|0|0|0

Re: Need help configuring a Domain Catch-all account that has mailboxes.

*) Did you ever create mail users manually with SQL command line?
*) All mail users must have one record in `vmail.mailbox` table, ALSO `vmail.forwardings`. Do you have both of them?

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?

Re: Need help configuring a Domain Catch-all account that has mailboxes.

Ok...

No I haven't created any new users since migrating to 0.9.7 and there were not any entries in the Forwardings table for existing users I migrated over.

I have now created a new user and can see the new user has a record in the Forwarding table... I created matching records for each mailbox and It now works as intended...  Re-Reading the migration document, is this what the migrate_sql_alias_table.py script does....
