Yes, I've tried this but it didn't work...
btw I'm using FreeBSD-6.1-STABLE
and for me is /usr/local/etc/postfix/virtual
and in this file I have all accounts like this:

user1 at domain user1 at domain
user2 at domain user2 at domain
user3 at domain user3 at domain
and I've tried to add something like this:

mario at domain mario at domain
mario.pavlov at domain mario at domain

but it didn't work...
what could be the problem ?
