Common Virtualmin Postfix Issue
virtualmin Postfix

I. Cannot be enabled unless a BCC map


Failed to save enabled features : Automatic BCCing of outgoing email cannot be enabled unless a BCC map is defined.




  1. Go to Webmin → Servers → Postfix Mail Server.
  2. Click on the BCC Mapping icon, and make sure the Sender BCC mapping lookup tables field is set. If it is not, you should enter a map specification like hash:/etc/postfix/bcc . Then click the Save and Apply button.
  3. Go to System Settings → Module Config, and change the Allow automatic BCCing of outgoing email? field to Yes, then click Save. If Virtualmin prompts you to re-check the configuration, do so.
