# NAME
#        virtual - Postfix virtual alias table format
# 
# SYNOPSIS
#        postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
# 
#        postmap -q "string" /etc/postfix/virtual
# 
#        postmap -q - /etc/postfix/virtual <inputfile
# 
# DESCRIPTION
#        The  optional  virtual(5)  alias  table rewrites recipient
#        addresses for all local, all virtual, and all remote  mail
#        destinations.   This  is unlike the aliases(5) table which
#        is used only for local(8) delivery.  Virtual  aliasing  is
#        recursive,  and  is  implemented by the Postfix cleanup(8)
#        daemon before mail is queued.
# 
#        The main applications of virtual aliasing are:
# 
#        o      To redirect mail for one address  to  one  or  more
#               addresses.
# 
#        o      To   implement  virtual  alias  domains  where  all
#               addresses  are  aliased  to  addresses   in   other
#               domains.
# 
#               Virtual  alias  domains are not to be confused with
#               the virtual mailbox domains  that  are  implemented
#               with  the  Postfix  virtual(8) mail delivery agent.
#               With  virtual  mailbox  domains,   each   recipient
#               address can have its own mailbox.
# 
#        Virtual  aliasing  is  applied  only to recipient envelope
#        addresses, and  does  not  affect  message  headers.   Use
#        canonical(5)   mapping  to  rewrite  header  and  envelope
#        addresses in general.
# 
#        Normally, the virtual(5) alias table  is  specified  as  a
#        text  file that serves as input to the postmap(1) command.
#        The result, an indexed file in dbm or db format,  is  used
#        for fast searching by the mail system. Execute the command
#        "postmap /etc/postfix/virtual" to rebuild an indexed  file
#        after changing the corresponding text file.
# 
#        When  the  table  is provided via other means such as NIS,
#        LDAP or SQL, the same lookups are  done  as  for  ordinary
#        indexed files.
# 
#        Alternatively,  the  table  can  be  provided  as  a regu-
#        lar-expression map where patterns  are  given  as  regular
#        expressions,  or  lookups  can  be  directed  to TCP-based
#        server. In those case, the lookups are done in a  slightly
#        different way as described below under "REGULAR EXPRESSION
#        TABLES" or "TCP-BASED TABLES".
# 
# CASE FOLDING
#        The search string is folded to lowercase  before  database
#        lookup.  As  of Postfix 2.3, the search string is not case
#        folded with database types such as regexp: or pcre:  whose
#        lookup fields can match both upper and lower case.
# 
# TABLE FORMAT
#        The input format for the postmap(1) command is as follows:
# 
#        pattern address, address, ...
#               When pattern matches a mail address, replace it  by
#               the corresponding address.
# 
#        blank lines and comments
#               Empty  lines and whitespace-only lines are ignored,
#               as are lines whose first  non-whitespace  character
#               is a `#'.
# 
#        multi-line text
#               A  logical  line starts with non-whitespace text. A
#               line that starts with whitespace continues a  logi-
#               cal line.
# 
# TABLE SEARCH ORDER
#        With lookups from indexed files such as DB or DBM, or from
#        networked  tables  such  as  NIS,  LDAP   or   SQL,   each
#        user@domain query produces a sequence of query patterns as
#        described below.
# 
#        Each query pattern is sent to each specified lookup  table
#        before  trying  the  next  query pattern, until a match is
#        found.
# 
#        user@domain address, address, ...
#               Redirect mail for  user@domain  to  address.   This
#               form has the highest precedence.
# 
#        user address, address, ...
#               Redirect mail for user@site to address when site is
#               equal to $myorigin, when site is listed in  $mydes-
#               tination,  or when it is listed in $inet_interfaces
#               or $proxy_interfaces.
# 
#               This functionality overlaps with  functionality  of
#               the  local  aliases(5)  database. The difference is
#               that virtual(5) mapping can be applied to non-local
#               addresses.
# 
#        @domain address, address, ...
#               Redirect mail for other users in domain to address.
#               This form has the lowest precedence.
# 
#               Note: @domain is a wild-card. With this  form,  the
#               Postfix  SMTP server accepts mail for any recipient
#               in domain, regardless  of  whether  that  recipient
#               exists.   This  may  turn  your  mail system into a
#               backscatter source: Postfix first accepts mail  for
#               non-existent  recipients  and  then tries to return
#               that mail as "undeliverable" to  the  often  forged
#               sender address.
# 
# RESULT ADDRESS REWRITING
#        The lookup result is subject to address rewriting:
# 
#        o      When  the  result  has  the  form @otherdomain, the
#               result becomes the same user in otherdomain.   This
#               works only for the first address in a multi-address
#               lookup result.
# 
#        o      When "append_at_myorigin=yes", append  "@$myorigin"
#               to addresses without "@domain".
# 
#        o      When "append_dot_mydomain=yes", append ".$mydomain"
#               to addresses without ".domain".
# 
# ADDRESS EXTENSION
#        When a mail address localpart contains the optional recip-
#        ient  delimiter  (e.g., user+foo@domain), the lookup order
#        becomes: user+foo@domain, user@domain, user+foo, user, and
#        @domain.
# 
#        The   propagate_unmatched_extensions   parameter  controls
#        whether an unmatched address extension  (+foo)  is  propa-
#        gated to the result of table lookup.
# 
# VIRTUAL ALIAS DOMAINS
#        Besides  virtual aliases, the virtual alias table can also
#        be used to implement virtual alias domains. With a virtual
#        alias  domain,  all  recipient  addresses  are  aliased to
#        addresses in other domains.
# 
#        Virtual alias domains are not to be confused with the vir-
#        tual mailbox domains that are implemented with the Postfix
#        virtual(8)  mail  delivery  agent.  With  virtual  mailbox
#        domains,  each recipient address can have its own mailbox.
# 
#        With a virtual alias domain, the virtual  domain  has  its
#        own  user  name  space. Local (i.e. non-virtual) usernames
#        are not visible in a virtual alias domain. In  particular,
#        local  aliases(5)  and local mailing lists are not visible
#        as localname@virtual-alias.domain.
# 
#        Support for a virtual alias domain looks like:
# 
#        /etc/postfix/main.cf:
#            virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
# 
#        Note: some systems use dbm databases instead of hash.  See
#        the  output  from  "postconf  -m"  for  available database
#        types.
# 
#        /etc/postfix/virtual:
#            virtual-alias.domain    anything (right-hand content does not matter)
#            postmaster@virtual-alias.domain postmaster
#            user1@virtual-alias.domain      address1
#            user2@virtual-alias.domain      address2, address3
# 
#        The virtual-alias.domain anything entry is required for  a
#        virtual alias domain. Without this entry, mail is rejected
#        with "relay access denied", or bounces  with  "mail  loops
#        back to myself".
# 
#        Do  not  specify virtual alias domain names in the main.cf
#        mydestination or relay_domains configuration parameters.
# 
#        With a virtual  alias  domain,  the  Postfix  SMTP  server
#        accepts   mail  for  known-user@virtual-alias.domain,  and
#        rejects  mail  for  unknown-user@virtual-alias.domain   as
#        undeliverable.
# 
#        Instead  of  specifying  the virtual alias domain name via
#        the virtual_alias_maps table, you may also specify it  via
#        the main.cf virtual_alias_domains configuration parameter.
#        This latter parameter uses the same syntax as the  main.cf
#        mydestination configuration parameter.
# 
# REGULAR EXPRESSION TABLES
#        This  section  describes how the table lookups change when
#        the table is given in the form of regular expressions. For
#        a  description  of regular expression lookup table syntax,
#        see regexp_table(5) or pcre_table(5).
# 
#        Each pattern is a regular expression that  is  applied  to
#        the entire address being looked up. Thus, user@domain mail
#        addresses are not broken up into their  user  and  @domain
#        constituent parts, nor is user+foo broken up into user and
#        foo.
# 
#        Patterns are applied in the order as specified in the  ta-
#        ble,  until  a  pattern  is  found that matches the search
#        string.
# 
#        Results are the same as with indexed  file  lookups,  with
#        the  additional feature that parenthesized substrings from
#        the pattern can be interpolated as $1, $2 and so on.
# 
# TCP-BASED TABLES
#        This section describes how the table lookups  change  when
#        lookups are directed to a TCP-based server. For a descrip-
#        tion of the TCP client/server lookup protocol, see tcp_ta-
#        ble(5).  This feature is not available up to and including
#        Postfix version 2.4.
# 
#        Each lookup operation uses the entire address once.  Thus,
#        user@domain  mail  addresses  are not broken up into their
#        user and @domain constituent parts, nor is user+foo broken
#        up into user and foo.
# 
#        Results are the same as with indexed file lookups.
# 
# BUGS
#        The  table format does not understand quoting conventions.
# 
# CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
#        The following main.cf parameters are  especially  relevant
#        to  this  topic.  See  the Postfix main.cf file for syntax
