Currently, iRedAdmin doesn't support this feature.
Are you using iRedAdmin full-featured edition?

Re: iredadmin - alias - catch-all

You can add an catch-all alias with phpLDAPadmin, for example:

dn: mail=@demo.iredmail.org,ou=Aliases,domainName=demo.iredmail.org,o=domains,dc=iredmail,dc=org
objectClass: mailAlias
accountStatus: active
mail: @demo.iredmail.org
enabledService: mail
enabledService: deliver
cn: Catch-all alias
mailForwardingAddress: userA@demo.redmail.org

Use 'mail=@demo.iredmail.org' for catch-all alias, and forward all mails to userA@demo.iredmail.org.

sorry... not like a charm...

the problem with this solution is that it doesnt care if the adressed email is actually exists.

so if i have 2 mailboxes :  1@example.com,2@example.com

and i add a catch-all alias @example.com -> 1@example.com  ( so all incoming is forwarded to 1@)

the problem is that if someone is adressing 2@example.com it will not reach that mailbox because the catch-all overrides this. and the mail goes to 1@example.com


do you have any solution in mind?

thanks

Re: iredadmin - alias - catch-all

no idea yet. Mail alias has higher priority than normal mail user.

PostfixAdmin solves this issue by inserting all normail mail user addresses into alias table, and forward to mail user's address.

Re: iredadmin - alias - catch-all

yes. i know postfixadmin solution...   that would be a nice idea if iredadmin would hide those entries (in alias list), so people will not get confused of entries of actual mailboxes.

I think you have to use hash file instead. Reference: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-setu … -accounts/

Re: iredadmin - alias - catch-all

yes. but it is an "almost must" feature to have in an admin panel, i think...
