    Hi Guys,

    I am new to Postfix. I greet you all. I am a small company and I am the
    only one in it. That is why I have to do everything by myself and
    therefore learn how to use postfix and DNS.
    Let me first apologise if I am not clear enough sometimes as IT is a
    need but I have no formal training in it.

    I have installed and configured DNS. So I have a FQDN on my server. I
    then installed postfix in order for me to be able to send email with a
    new smtp server with my company domain name called memoria.fr
    I thought I had everything under control when I tried to send my first
    email from my new smtp server with the domain name memoria.fr I get the
    error message as followed

    *"Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table"
    *
    I made a copy of my main.cf and master.cf file. In case I made mistakes
    in regards to the error message above. I am using debian testing on an
    amd64 with postfix 2.5.1-1. I assumed that my smtp emails from my
    internal mail server memoria.fr would have to bounce off my ISP mail
    server in that case orange.fr That is why I have put a relayhost =
    orange.fr.

    Thank you all for your help
