First, thanks to the CentOS folks for creating such as awesome distro!
 Second, thanks to all for contributing to such an great mailling

I installed MailScanner/SpamAssassin/ClamAV last week based on the
excellent threads that have recently discussed the subject.  For folks
who missed it, I used Johnny's wonderful guide at
http://www.hughesjr.com/content/category/1/14/30/Guides (see Part 4).

I'm using CentOS 3.4.  On the MTA side, I am using Postfix with a
virtual alias table.  I want to have MailScanner use the "forward"
"Spam Actions" option to put all spam in a central email account (it's
a local account on the same server).  I can email to this central spam
account no problem (both locally and from outside accounts such as
gmail).  The "Spam Actions = forward blah at blah.com" works if
blah at blah.com is an account on a separate system (such as this account
on gmail).   However, no matter what I do, I cannot make it work with
a local account -- I always get the following postfix error in

   ..., status=bounced (user unknown in virtual alias table).  

I'm guessing it has something to do with the fact that I'm using a
virtual alias table, but I don't want to get rid of that (even for
testing purposes) because it's obviously being used for live email.

I know this might be more of a Postfix or MailScanner question, but I
thought I would start here.

Many thanks for any assistance!
