    Postfix: User unknown in local recipient table


    Hey all, I know this question has been posted elsewhere, but none of the suggested fixes seemed to work for me, so maybe my problem is a little different than others.

    Postfix was working fine on my server, but then I edited some of the aliases, ran 'newaliases', it all checked out, and now it won't send or receive any mail.

    I get the following error returned to me when I try and email anyone on that server:

    Technical details of permanent failure:
    PERM_FAILURE: Gmail tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the recipient domain. The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 <grahamswan@ess.ualberta.ca>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table. We recommend contacting the other email provider for further information about the cause of this error. Thanks for your continued support. (state 14)
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    post your main.cf (you can edit ip and domain names)

    you probably need to run
    #postmap name_of_your_alias_file

    instead of newaliases

    you can try that and if it doesn't help or you aren't sure then post your main.cf

    so this didn't do anything?
    Code:
    #postmap /etc/aliases 
    #postmap /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases
    
    #postfix reload

    No, I've tried that several times, and the server keeps sending back the same error. I tried e-mailing someone who has an account on the actual server, and it went through in a couple seconds. The problem is definitely with the aliases. Postfix is sending/receiving mail with no problems--it's just the aliases that aren't working for some reason..

    Those logs don't even exist. I did "find / -name "mail.*" -type f -print" and neither of those files aren't present. Thanks for your help so far. This is great.

    how about posting the output of
    Code:
    postconf
    also, have you opened your alias files to make sure they aren't corrupted in some way.

    This is pretty long, but here it is. And yeah, I've scanned through /etc/aliases numerous times to make sure there's nothing wrong with it. I even had our other admin look through it and he couldn't find anything either.

    Again, <> are valid but have been edited out. Not even sure if that matters or not. I imagine the hostname/ip of the server can be posted too, but I took it out.

    no thats fine. I am honestly not seeing anything wrong. you said you have checked /etc/aliases, but have you checked this file /usr/local/mailman/data/aliases to make sure it exists and isn't corupted?

    I am suprised there are no .err and .warn files.

    if postfix is logging everything into mail.info or mail.log, then do this
    Code:
    tail -f /var/log/mail.log
    and while you have a running tail, open a telnet session to your server
    #telnet serverip 25
    and see what gets logged.

    if you still don't get anything useful then make this change
    Code:
    /etc/postfix/main.cf:
        debug_peer_list = 127.0.0.1
    with the ip being the ip you are connecting from.
