    Hi,
    I need a small help from you all guys I am trying to create a group for a set of people that have e-mail so sending it to this e-mail it will reach to that set of people
    example

    This is the command that I Use :

    sudo /usr/sbin/groupadd salesman

    then I add each user to the group (the user existed already)

    sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G salesman okok1
    sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G salesman okok2
    sudo /usr/sbin/usermod -G salesman okok3

    then I verify that was created correctly

    [alejandro@colon alejandro]$ id okok1
    uid=571(okok1) gid=577(salesman) groups=577(salesman)

    but when I try to send e-mail to the group it send me a Undeliverable message

    No this is not the way to setup email groups. You need to use .forward file or using virtual tables. Do you wanna redirect/sed mail for local recipients (on same mail server) or remote mail server (user@dom.com, user@dom2.net) etc?

    For local user open /etc/mail/aliases or /etc/aliases in wich aliases are specified in the format of <alias name>: <existing account>. The <existing account> should be substituted by one or more account names in form of a coma separated list.

    For sales alias an e-mail sales@dom.net that should be delivered to all the users you, jerry, top etc:
    Code:
    sales: you, jerry, top, user@yahoo.com, admin@gmail.com
    save the changes and restart postfix MTA
