Setup email forwarding with Postfix on Debian

As you are probably aware, setting up a fully functional email server is a daunting task to say the least.

On my dedicated server I wanted to have simple email forwarding for email aliases on my domain. For example would forward to my Gmail account. I didn’t want to jump through the hoops to setup a fully functional SMTP/Inbox/Imap email server when all I needed was a forwarding address at my custom domain.

Here are the steps, which takes around 10 minutes.
