 regular postfix-style virtual domains and local users
Author: Jim Trigg 
Date:   27-05-03 20:25

You say in this article that "Local user names are not visible in a regular postfix-style virtual domain." This is only true if every domain for which you accept mail is configured as a virtual domain. If, for example, you have a "base" domain which does not have a virtual table, then its users will be the local users. Generally speaking, most people will not configure a virtual domain for the FQDN, so if your system is foo.example.com and you have virtual domains for example.com and example.net as follows:
example.com DOMAIN
dan@example.com dan-com
example.net DOMAIN
dan@example.net dan-net

then the addresses dan-com@foo.example.com and dan-net@foo.example.com would work, delivering email to the mailboxes for dan@example.com and dan@example.net respectively.
