Hello Jonas,

Hi Jan,

I've asked this same question before, but I haven't received an answer/solution yet.
The following problem occurs when a catch-all should be forwarded to an external address : The email is only delivered locally to the catch-all account.

Where does it actually get delivered, as there isn't a "i-am-a-test"
account in reality?

There is no "i-am-a-test" account. The email gets delivered to the catch-all account (postmaster), which is correct.
But when postmaster receives the email, it should be forwarded to the named emailaddresses, and this doesn't happen.

There are two files missing: vpasswd and vpasswd.cdb. Probably this is
the reason for a strange behaviour of vdelivermail (which should be use
better error-catching, if this is really the case).

vpasswd is in: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/var/vpopmail/bin# ls -la vpasswd -rwx--x--x 1 vpopmail vchkpw 133677 Feb 6 01:09 vpasswd*

There is no vpasswd.cdb file on our server, we use mySQL for authentication.

I'd suggest deleting and recreating the three users, or restoring
vpasswd[.cdb] from a recent backup.

I'll delete -just got approval from the customer- the account (vdeldomain) to recreate it (vadddomain) and see what happens then.

Thanks :).

Met vriendelijke groet / Best regards,
Jan Reilink
