[Mailman-Users] Mailman on multiple domains

So I didn't have the entry for POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS in my
mm_cfg.py file.

So I added the following:

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['www.second-domain.com']

Ran /bin/genaliases, no errors....

Mail still bounces with the following:

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:	Test to list
      Sent:	10/30/2008 4:16 PM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      scott-test at second-domain.com on 10/30/2008 4:16 PM
            There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's
email server.  Please contact your system administrator.
            <jdaarch.com #5.5.0 smtp;550 <scott-test at second-domain.com>:
Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table

Guess I still don't know how the virtual alias table gets updated when a
list is created....thanks in advance for any thoughts.

Is the virtual domain in

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['the.virtual.domain']

in mm_cfg.py.

Is the host_name of the list = the.virtual.domain

Have you run Mailman's bin/genaliases since setting

MTA= 'Postfix'


POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['the.virtual.domain']

in mm_cfg.py?
