Topic: recipient_delimiter not working, dovecot rejecting it

I am setting up a new install using iRedMail 0.5.1 with the MySQL backend on Centos 5.4, and most everything looks good in my initial testing.  However, one problem I had was getting recipient_delimiter to work.  This is the setting that allows users to make their own e-mail address by doing username+whatever@domain.com

I've tried setting recipient_delimiter in /etc/postfix/main.cf to both + and _ (_ is what I need to migrate), and in both cases, I see the following in my logs:

postfix/smtpd[2790]: connect from mail.domain.com[]

I'm interpreting this as postfix receives the message fine from roundcube (721BF4287), throws it to amavis, gets it back as a new message (BD7324288), then sends that into dovecot where it gets bounced with the user unknown error.

Digging into the issue, I believe I found a fix for my setup, but I still wanted to post here in case there is a better way, or to help others that may be attempting to do similar.

In /etc/postfix/master.conf, the following lines exist, this is where postfix is delivering mail to dovecot:

dovecot unix    -       n       n       -       -      pipe
  flags=DRhu user=vmail:vmail argv=/usr/libexec/dovecot/deliver -d ${recipient} -f ${sender}

I changed the -d to ${user}@${domain}, instead of ${recipient).  This causes postfix to send over drakino@domain.com, instead of drakino_test3@domain.com to dovecot.


Re: recipient_delimiter not working, dovecot rejecting it

Did you test '-f ${sender} -d ${user}@${nexthop} -n -m ${extension}'?
