I installed MailScanner/SpamAssassin/ClamAV last week. I used Johnny
Hughes' excellent guide at
http://www.hughesjr.com/content/category/1/14/30/Guides (see Part 4).
I'm using RHEL 3/CentOS 3.4. On the MTA side, I am using Postfix with a
virtual alias table. I want to have MailScanner use the "forward"
"Spam Actions" option to put all spam in a central email account (it's
a local account on the same server). I can email to this central spam
account no problem (both locally and from outside accounts such as
gmail). The "Spam Actions = forward blah at blah.com" works if
blah at blah.com is an account on a separate system (such as this account
on gmail). However, no matter what I do, I cannot make it work with
a local account -- I always get the following postfix error in
..., status=bounced (user unknown in virtual alias table).
I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that I'm using a
virtual alias table, but I don't want to get rid of that (even for
testing purposes) because it's obviously being used for live email.
Many thanks for any assistance!
