on my server, I'm getting this error:

20:54 ns2 postfix/qmgr[29071]: A26F35E151F: from=<apache@mail.domain.com>, size=1527, nrcpt=1 (queue active)
Sep 17 14:20:54 ns2 postfix/trivial-rewrite[11438]: warning: do not list domain domain.com in BOTH virtual_alias_domains and relay_domains
Sep 17 14:20:54 ns2 postfix/error[11439]: A26F35E151F: to=<email@domain.com>, relay=none, delay=0.04, delays=0.03/0/0/0.01, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (User unknown in virtual alias table)

running apache and postfix.

Also, this is only happening on email accounts that are with godaddy.  all others work and get a 250 msg.  If it means anything, the domain in "apache@mail.domain.com" is registered with godaddy and is set up as nameserver at registrar.  Also, my isp is comcast and I have a reverse dns lookup on the name mail.domain.com (of course domain is hidden) on the ip that gets mail sent out on.

Any ideas experts?

do not list domain domain.com in BOTH virtual_alias_domains and relay_domains
Is domain.com listed in both virtual_alias_domains and relay_domains ?

All of this stuff should be in main.cf

You can use 'postconf -n' to see all the values in main.cf that have changed from default.  However since I have no clue what was changed in yours, postconf -n may not show you all the stuff we need for this.  Just a good command to remember.

While you are in there, look for all the virtual_* parameters as well.  

For any problem like this it is always a huge help to post pertinent config excerpts.

Okay, I'm using virtualmin and removed the mail from there on the account and it worked.  Thanks!
