can you give concrete examples. show the log line, say what it does and 
what it should do.

but please use the postfix-users list instead of here.

do with virtual_alias_domains.

why is sendmail still running. use alternatives to set the MTA to 
postfix, then stop sendmail. otherwise, you'll have problems.

followups on the postfix-users list please.
