        To those interested in implementing aliases:

        We found that the aliases based on beehive groups did not suffice for
        us: actually we need lots of aliases, and some of those should not be
        visible in the GAL (mainly the technical affines, one prominent
        example being the postmaster address required for RFC 822 compliance,
        see also Re: E-Mail sender verification and hiding items in the gal.

        To implement this, we thought of the aliases file that comes with a
        fronted postfix, but this file will not work, as postfix as a fronted
        MTA is only routing, not delivering into beehive.

        Oracle support recommended to use the /etc/postfix/virtual file: this
        can serve to rewrite envelopes in a way that is what we needed.

        One example to implement the abovementioned postmaster address:

        myhost:/ # egrep "^virtual" /etc/postfix/main.cf
        virtual_alias_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
        virtual_alias_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/virtual
        myhost:/ # tail -2 /etc/postfix/virtual
        # postmaster, for RFC 822 compliance
        postmaster     user
        myhost:/ # postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
        myhost:/ #

        This will effectively deliver mail to postmaster@domain to

        Pooh bear found honey again!

        Regards, Thomas

          Is there a way to create an email address for business purposes? For example, we use online software that requires us to use an email address. Currently we are listed as our legacy company, but want to change it to something like anynamebilling@oracle.com. Can someone help with that?

            I assume that you are using hosted beehive online? So you probably will need to address your question to the Beehive Online forum.
