Good afternoon,

I have to add a domain alias for the new domain so that could be reached at as well. Alternatively, any mail for could be delivered to , that would work too, I don't know if it is any easier

I'll describe how to do both below. You can choose which solution you want.

I added in the esmptacceptmailfor, and I no longer get 513 Relaying denied. Good.

Absolutely right!

I tried adding "" or "<tab>" into locals file or hosteddomains, but i am getting 556 Address unavailable when i try to send mail.

Ok, here are your options.

Alternative 1. Map <anything> to <anything> This will cause to go to, to go to, etc. I don't know if you're using full mailbox names such as "" in your userdb, or if you are just using usernames like "jan". If all you are using is local names, then simply adding this line to locals will do it. and will be the same mailbox, as will anything else and

If you are using names like in your userdb, then add the following line to hosteddomains. <tab>

Don't forget to run makehosteddomains after you make this change. From then on, Courier will rewrite <anything> to <anything> and then try to deliver to a mailbox by that name on the system.

Alternative 2. Send any mail addressed to <anything> to a single address This will send mail for <anything> to like you suggested in your original post. Put the following line into your aliases.

Depending on your setup, you might instead use: info

If I can be of further assistance, feel free to contact me on list or privately. Joe
