    Hi everyone,

    I was trying to check the list archives for some hints, but it seems that
    that server is having some 'difficulties' at the moment, and isn't

    I am currently in the process of setting up another Cyrus/IMAP server, as
    I've been (personally) running Cyrus/Sendmail for a few years now with good
    results. I had the usual sendmail+virtdomains+cyrus hoops to jump through,
    but now have THAT working all right (by way of a mailertable entries, i.e. cyrusv2d:/var/lib/imap/socket/lmtp

    The problem is that for this to WORK, must not be considered a
    "local domain" (i.e. it must not be in local-host-names), since this results
    in a rewrite that strips the 'host' portion of the address off, and then
    Cyrus rejects the message with an 'unknown mailbox' error.

    And all of this ultimately means that I can't use sendmail "aliases" (for
    non-local addresses), which I need in order to redirect such things as
    postmaster, root, etc. to a particular user.

    Have I missed something simple here? I've tried following the instructions
    at but
    that is where I am getting stuck...
