"Aug 18 13:57:13 email postfix/cleanup[22895]: warning: 1647DF000AA: unreasonable virtual_alias_maps map expansion size for list@domain.com -- deferring delivery"

Re: Unreasoanable Virtual alias maps expansion size error

This is sorted,I was paying much attention on alias size limit but the culprit was found to be a loop.

the client had a mailing list  support@domain.com -> recepient1,recepient2,recepient3
                    then he had  recepient2 -> recepient1,support@domain.com

on the logs all i was able to see is the alias expansion limit error making it difficult.

Thanks.
