I get the same error no matter where I send the message from. From
gmail, I get this:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
test at email.winnefox.org
Technical details of failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 10): 550 <test at email.winnefox.org>: User
unknown in local recipient table

I'm running postfix on redhat 3.0AS server. I also have webmin running
on there. Going into the postfix area in there, under Mail Aliases, I

So, it appears as though all the aliases were created.

Actually, as far as mailman is concerned, it shouldn't be forwarding the
mail on. Since that's a local alias, it should be taking care of
everything itself. Shouldn't it? Is there something else I'm missing?
