ISTM the Postfix documentation is pretty clear with one
line. Anything else even that might "work" would be exploiting an
undocumented feature that might well change without notice, IMHO.
,----[ man virtual ]
virtual - format of Postfix virtual alias table
[[ .... ]]
Support for a virtual alias domain looks like:
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
Note: some systems use dbm databases instead of hash. See the out-
put from postconf -m for available database types.
virtual-alias.domain anything (right-hand content does not matter)
postmaster at virtual-alias.domain postmaster
user1 at virtual-alias.domain address1
user2 at virtual-alias.domain address2, address3
The virtual-alias.domain anything entry is required for a virtual alias
domain. Without this entry, mail is rejected with "relay access
denied", or bounces with "mail loops back to myself".
