Postfix Configuration for email addresses with "."

Asked by tooql4life on 2007-07-03

Hi am setting up a mail server for a friend using ubuntu 6.06, postfix, and courier pop for a network of around 20 users. The domain is already registered and had the DNS setup. i can connect to postfix using telnet on the localhost. My problem is how do I add users with email addresses like <email address hidden> since the system rejects usersnames with periods in them. How do i solve this?

OK, hold my hand and stay close.

Open your Synaptics Package Manager: System->Administration->Synaptics Package Manager
Give your password
Click on Search
Enter postfix
Click on Search
Scroll down to the postfix entry
Right click -> Select "Mark for Installation"
Click on Apply (on the main toolbox)
Wait until installation is succesfull.
Exit and you are done.

Adding entries in /etc/aliases of the form:
first.last: user
will cause first.last@host to user after you run 'newaliases'. You'll want to get a good book on postfix administration before you go too far.

Can you help with this problem?
