Topic: [1.0-beta1] Mail alias not working with LDAP backend

Hi,

I did a fresh install of iRedMail 1.0-beta1 (with downloadable installer) on Debian Buster, and I can't make mail alias working (https://docs.iredmail.org/ldap.add.mail.alias.html).
When I receive an email on an alias email, Postfix logs say :

Recipient address rejected: Unknown user

If I try the given command :

postmap -v -q 'alias@yyy.zzz' ldap:/etc/postfix/ldap/virtual_alias_maps.cf

It works fine, it finds the mailForwardingAddress.

I didn't change any of the ldap maps, and I changed almost nothing in the generated postfix configuration (see the attached file).

Can you please help me ?

Thanks !

Could you please export the full LDIF data of this mail alias account? I'd like to double check and make sure you didn't miss any required LDAP attribute/value.

Hi ZhangHuangbin,

Sorry for the late answer, I was pretty busy.

Here's the LDIF export :

version: 1

dn: mail=postmaster@xxx.yyy,ou=Aliases,domainName=xxx.yyy,o=domains,dc=aaa,dc=bbb
accountstatus: active
enabledservice: mail
enabledservice: deliver
mail: postmaster@xxx.yyy
mailforwardingaddress: postmaster@aaa.bbb
objectclass: mailAlias
objectclass: top

Regards,
tms

Re: [1.0-beta1] Mail alias not working with LDAP backend

LDIF looks fine and it should work.

Could you please show me the output of commands below:

cd /etc/postfix/ldap/
for i in $(ls *cf); do echo $i; postmap -v -q 'alias@yyy.zzz' ldap:./$i; done

Also, show me the full content of /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf (remove the LDAP bind password before pasting here).

Re: [1.0-beta1] Mail alias not working with LDAP backend

I am experiencing a similar problem.

I also installed version 1.0-beta1 and I am getting the same error. Apparently the difference is that this error only occurs when email is sent to a list from an external member of it.

Should I open a separate topic to address this?

What information can I offer to help with this issue?

Re: [1.0-beta1] Mail alias not working with LDAP backend

Hi Zhang,

That's the output:

transport_maps_domain.cf:query_filter    = (&(objectClass=mailDomain)(accountStatus=active)(enabledService=mail)(|(domainName=%s)(domainAliasName=%s)))
virtual_mailbox_maps.cf:query_filter    = (&(objectClass=mailUser)(|(mail=%s)(&(enabledService=shadowaddress)(shadowAddress=%s)))(accountStatus=active)(!(domainStatus=disabled))(enabledService=mail)(enabledService=deliver))

Re: [1.0-beta1] Mail alias not working with LDAP backend

Seems same issue as this one:
https://forum.iredmail.org/post71261.html#p71261

Could you please try to comment out "check_policy_service inet:127.0.0.1:12340" line in /etc/postfix/main.cf and try again?

Hi @fcaseiro,

Which linux distribution and release are you running? I can not reproduce this issue locally.
