damn. you are right. i have not checked this before but seems that
confixx (an webserver control program, like cpanel) is messing with the
it puts a lot of stuff (canonical, transport,etc.) at the end of
main.cf. in a file called virtaul_users it defines something like:
i think thats the problem - unfortunatly i have experienced that it
rewrites all of its own configuration files with a cron-job. so it's no
option to edit this files it created itself.
i tried to include the mailman aliases below that configuration and i
got an error message by postfix:
netmilk-general"@p15135765.pureserver.info>: unknown user:
"|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post netmilk-general"
so maybe putting the virtual_maps just after the confixx configuration
stuff isn't an option.
are there other ways of overriding the virtual_maps of this lousy little
P.S: I just received Shoeppi's eMail: that's exactly the problem!
do you know how i can override this, "Leidensgenosse"? ;)
