[conspire] Postfix questions

On Ricks long standing advice I've converted the MTA on my system from
Sendmail to Postfix. But alas, I'm feeling so green now.
I need to accept mail from the nylxs.com domain and the mrbrklyn.com
domains. The nylxs.com domain was added to my virtual table, but this
doesn't seem to be right and the FAQ is making my newbie head spin.
I'm getting back from postfix this message:
Final-Recipient: rfc822; hangout at nylxs.com
Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; host www2.mrbrklyn.com[22.214.171.124] said:
<hangout at nylxs.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in
alias table (in reply to RCPT TO command)
Before bothing anyone I looked this up on the net:
Postfix rejects mail with "User unknown in virtual alias table"
Answer: you have listed the virtual domain name in the tables specified
with the virtual_alias_domains parameter, but the recipient address is
not listed in the tables specified with the virtual_alias_maps
If you want to deliver the domain via the Postfix virtual(8) mailbox
delivery agent, then you should list the virtual domain name in the
tables specified with the virtual_mailbox_domains parameter instead.
So I'm confused. First, I figured that I'll just take the path of least
resistance and alter that table, but I don't see it in my postfix setup.
Do I need to add something to the canonical file? It is currently empy.
Do I need to add each of the users seperately? I have a few hundred
users on this box.
The files in that directory seem to be just:
www2:/etc # ls -c1 postfix/
The virtual file has in it:
That was set up by yast and actually postfix might be complaining that
the mrbrklyn.com line is uneeded.
I'm obviously missing something fundemental here, in both the reasoning
behind postfixes method and its setup. The Jaargon on the FAQ is
making me even more confused, which I'm sure is my fault.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
