Question

If I send an email and forward with postfix from the forwarded address it doesn't go through.

I have postfix setup to forward all emails sent to my website to my gmail account.

It works for all email addresses except my gmail account. (Works for other gmails)

/etc/postfix/virtual looks like this:

@web.com name@gmail.com

I can send mail from console. And other email addresses are forwarded. Except my gmail.

Is google blocking this because they think I am spoofing the header? Or is it on my end?

Is there an easy way to fix this?
(I’d like to limit my email install just to postfix, I’m only forwarding, nothing else)

I have a definitely same problem like ced.koehler, but I can’t also find any solution. <br>I tried ‘newaliases’ and rebooting too, but the problem isn’t solved.

Try running <code>newaliases</code> and then rebooting your droplet.

Its definitely not in my gmail spam folder. Any other help would be greatly appreciated, this has me stumped. <br> <br>Thanks.
