    Hello,

    I'm trying to setup a Postfix+Cyrus installation (no SQL nor LDAP, only hash files).
    I only want to handle virtual domains, no local accounts
    My cyrus imap version is 2.3.7 since this is the packaged version for centos/redhat.
    My postfix version is 2.3.3 for the same reason.
    I'm still having the same problem, after hours and hours of researchs, surfing, and doc reading :
    lmtpunix[11333]: verify_user(user.test) failed: Mailbox does not exist
    And then mail bounces...

    I'm not sure if this is a postfix or cyrus problem, it seems like postfix, through cyrus deliver, doesn't pass @myothervirtualdomain1.com
    (This is explained here but I don't know how to make it work : http://cyrusimap.web.cmu.edu/twiki/bin/view/Cyrus/CyrusDeliverWithAt )
