in howto for gentoo i found this:

To tell Postfix about the maps that you've just set up, add the 
following (substituting mysql for pgsql if you're on PostgreSQL) to the 
bottom of /etc/postfix/main.cf:
virtual_alias_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/sql_virtual_alias_maps.cf
virtual_mailbox_domains = mysql:/etc/postfix/sql_virtual_domain_maps.cf
virtual_mailbox_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/sql_virtual_mailbox_maps.cf

Tip: Because this is using the Dovecot's LDA, all results from 
virtual_mailbox_maps are ignored beyond checking if they exist.

I added in the mysql db an alias postmaster at domainn.tld that should be 
forwarded to name at domainn.tld.
The tip above tells me when using dovecot lda the virtual_alias_maps is 
ignored by dovecot.

now when i send a mail to postmaster at domainn.tld the mail is not 
transported to name at domainn.tld.

in logfile i see this:

dovecot: auth-worker: sql(postmaster at zbfmail.de): Unknown user

how can i tell dovecot to also use the virtual_alias_maps?

thank you
