What is a translation map ?

There is no such thing in OpenSMTPD (as of today).

from table(5):

     Aliasing tables
     Aliasing tables are mappings that associate a recipient to one or many
     destinations.  They can be used in two contexts: primary domain aliases
     and virtual domain mapping.
     In a virtual domain context, the key is either a user part, a full email
     address or a catch all, following selection rules described in
     smtpd.conf(5), and the value is one or many recipients as described in

           user1                   otheruser

You're feeding the virtual table with invalid values.

Also, this is a recipient translation mechanism, similar to aliases, and
not a sender rewriting mechanism which we do not have at this point.

virtual _now_ only works on recipients, not senders ?

the virtual code hasn't changed, it works the way it always did.

there is no way it could ever do what you're describing or attempting to
do given that it doesn't operate at all anywhere near the message. there
is no way it has ever parsed:

and the only thing that changed is that such errors are now visible from
the session as:

    5.2.4 Mailing list expansion problem

instead of an invalid recipient error like it probably did in 6.3

This is bullshit.

The grammar doesn't reduce the functional scope, it can only expand it.

What you are describing has never existed in smtpd, there's never been
code to translate sender addresses and there's a good reason for that:

it not considered doable before the grammar change...

But sure, blame it on the grammar.

I may sound a bit harsh, but starting a thread with "this is my last try
or I'll switch" (as if it actually matters) right before telling someone
who wants to help you that you actually tried _nothing_ then blaming the
code improvements for a use-case that could have never worked because it
not only uses the wrong _documented_ mechanism but also because the code
to make your use-case work has never existed, kinds of irritates me.

I don't get royalties on smtpd install, please install whatever software
fits your use case, this is how proper engineering works.
