Topic: forward email to another address and keep a copy in the mailbox

Hi,

we are using iRedMail with mysql backend. Some of our customers would like to forward mail to another address, but also keep a local copy.
How do you set this up? I tried in postfixadmin to create an alias and mailbox of the same name, but that isn't allowed.

Try this:

  • Create an normal mail account: user01@domain.ltd

  • Create an alias: user01@domain.ltd, and forward to user01@, user02@, user03@.

In postfixadmin you are not allowed to create an alias when a mailbox with the same name exists or vice versa.

Use mysql command line instead.

You can also do it by using phpmyadmin and goto the vmail database ......... browse the alias table ..... find the user you want to forward the e-mail for. simpy just add to the already created alias for the user the address you want to for ward to. Worked like a charm for me.

Hope this helped.
