    Hi, Mouss, I am, perhaps, on the right track, thanks to your
    tip about virtual_alias_domains, and of course to you patience,
    for which much thanks!

    Here is my new revision of the appropriate lines from my

    myhostname = alanmcc.localdomain
    alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
    alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases

    virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual

    mydestination = alanmcc.localdomain, localhost

       I made a /etc/postfix/virtual, with contents:

    postmaster at alanmcc dot localdomain postmaster
    root at alanmcc dot localdomain root
    webmaster at alanmcc dot localdomian webmaster
    alan at alanmcc dot localdomain alan

    I postmapped this to get a virtual.db (all this while postfix was

    I then ran postfix check and postfix start and sent out
    a test email to postmaster and to my gmail account. HOWEVER,
    the E-mail went out, again, to !!! The
    cc arrived at gmail OK, and there was no problem with either
    /var/log/mail.err or /var/log/mail.log .

    Am I close? I think so, because what I'm doing goes out OK, and
    I get no errors. And it conforms to what I read in the docs, as
    far as I understand them.

    It seems to me that what I'm striving for is something that is
    very useful, and can't be that hard to achieve.

    Again, many thanks. I hope a third iteration of suggestions will
    bring success.
