I'm not sure what you mean. The mail text? There is nothing more in the

Because I added alias entries to my users which I replaced now with the 
entry in the virtual table. So the addressing is not caused by this 
entry. The domains itself are added in the kolab frontend so that they 
get included in the mydestination and masquerade_domains parameters.

I have a reference installation (normal postfix without kolab) that I 
want to replace with this kolab server and there I have the following 
virtual_alias_domains=the configured domains
mydestination=contains only the local hostname

And my virtual file contains all the existing users with alias

In my kolab enviroment I have all domains listed in the mydestination. 
Maybe that's the difference?
