Managing alias domains

An alias domain is an alias for a domain that was previously added with the subcommand domainadd. All accounts, aliases and relocated users from the domain will be also available in the alias domain. In the following is to be assumed that example.net is an alias for example.com.

Postfix will not accept erroneously e-mails for unknown.user@example.net and bounce them back later to the mostly faked sender. Postfix will immediately reject all e-mails addressed to nonexistent users.

This behavior is ensured as long as you use the recommended database queries in your $config_directory/pgsql-*.cf configuration files.

aliasdomainadd

Syntax:
vmm aliasdomainadd fqdn destination
vmm ada fqdn destination

This subcommand adds the new alias domain (fqdn) to the destination domain that should be aliased.

Example:

root@host:~# vmm aliasdomainadd example.net example.com

aliasdomaindelete

Syntax:
vmm aliasdomaindelete fqdn
vmm add fqdn

Use this subcommand if the alias domain fqdn should be removed.

Example:

root@host:~# vmm aliasdomaindelete e.g.example.com

aliasdomaininfo

Syntax:
vmm aliasdomaininfo fqdn
vmm adi fqdn

This subcommand shows to which domain the alias domain fqdn is assigned to.

Example:

root@host:~# vmm adi example.net
Alias domain information

        The alias domain example.net belongs to:

aliasdomainswitch

Syntax:
vmm aliasdomainswitch fqdn destination
vmm aos fqdn destination

If the destination of the existing alias domain fqdn should be switched to another destination use this subcommand.
