    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/
    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!

    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 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.
