I need to config some dotzend domains for a postmaster mail account.
As I think there maybe use of this account about once a year I don't like to confige each mail account for an own maildir.
What I like to do is the following:
My main account is on our local exchange server.
On a linux server is postfix installed
I like to config postfix to redirect any mail for postmaster@d1.tld, postmaster@d2.tld, postmaster@d3.tld ... to my account myaccountonexchangeserver@domain.tld

How can I configure this?
There's no need for a local copy or what ever on the postfix server just the forewar is needed ...

Why not use the alias table for that?

How is your postfix integrated with the exchange?
Is your postfix system tied into the AD via LDAP?

I see, my explaining was bad ...
Right, the second mail server is exchange but that doesn't matter ans they're not connected to each other.
I just want postfix foreward a couple of mails ...
