/etc/postfix/virtual is similar to /etc/aliases except:

  • applies only to external incoming email
  • format is much simpler and less flexible - only one destination per target, and that must always be an email address

After modifying the file:

  • postmap /etc/postfix/virtual — updates the virtual.db file
  • /etc/init.d/postfix reload or possibly service postfix reload (to be tested)
