Hello Postfix List!

I'm searchin in google the hole day, but i can't fix my Problem.

My System is a Fedory Core 3 Server with
postfix/cyrus-imapd/saslauthd/pam_mysql and amavisd-new, etc.

All Domains are Virtual in the mysql Database. I use the Howto from Luc De
Louw, to install it. All works fine for me.

But i have one error that i can't solve.

root Mails are not delivered from syslog since a few weeks!

I try out with alias to my adress and without a alias!!!
But if root takes mutt to read his mails, there are no mails in his inbox,

I have try out a alias in /etc/aliases with contains this _> root:
myprivatemail at dom.tld
I made newaliases and the new alias is counted in the output from

To test the behaviours, i use this -> less /var/log/maillog | mail -s "test
to root" root
i only post my maillog in a mail to root ;)

But in the maillog this happens:

.and if i send the mail to root at snitch.de or root at localhost or the virtuall
adress of the virtual domains root at mailrelay.snitch.de all take the same
error in maillog. ;(

Here are my config Parameters:

main.cf ->
myhostname = mailrelay.snitch.de
mydomain = snitch.de
mydestination = $myhostname, $mydomain,
mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-mydestination.cf (virtual domains etc. in mysql
inet_interfaces = all
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases
alias_database = hash:/etc/aliases
newaliases_path = /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix
virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual,
mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-virtual.cf <. i use mysql AND the old config for
the local user mailboxes i think!?!
sender_canonical_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/mysql-canonical.cf

Why there are no mails delivered to the standard inbox to root? Should i put
the root User in mysql to the sntch.de domain? If i use mutt i can only see
as there is the last from the 02.02.2005! What i made wrong here? I use the
localhost etc. in mydestination, but he say's Mail for * loops bacl to

All other features are working correctly, but i need my syslog mails to my
private adress ;(
