Misconfiguration. I suspect you've misconfigured the virtual_alias_maps field, but any other maps option could be wrong.

Maps are always configured in the form:

hash:/path/to/file

It looks like maybe you've just given it "hash:" without a path to a file. That'd be wrong. ;-)

Joe would be absolutely correct :)

help...now i've got this:

I have no idea. I've never seen errors like that, but I'm guessing some directory configured for the queue doesn't exist or isn't writable by the user Postfix is running as. But that's just a guess.

How did you install Postfix?

and this mainly
