    qmail forwarding

    Hi,

    I have qmail setup for mydomain.com, with vpopmail too.

    so when i add users i do cd /home/vpopmail/bin;./vadduser [email protected]

    i have [email protected] as an email - people email it regularily.

    i also my friend an email [email protected] for him to use..

    Does anyone know how i can make it so whenever someone emails [email protected] it will send the message to

    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]

    so basically, if someone emails [email protected] - it will send the email to cds@ and 2 other people...

    ive had some bad experiences trying to get it to work
    i tried some things like creating a file called '.qmail' in /home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain.com and putting

    &username
    &username2
    &cds

    things like that. didn't turn out too well. i had 500 mailer-daemon messages, and mail kept sending to all the emails like crazy
    it was insane

    you can do it 1 way 2 formats..

    in: /home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain.com

    make .qmail-cds
    with this inside:

    &[email protected]
    &[email protected]

    (dont do &[email protected] or it will just loop)

    or inside .qmail-cds u can do this:
    /home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain.com/jim/Maildir/
    /home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain.com/bob/Maildir/

    the first one is easier though

    if your not much of a command line commando you can get qmailadmin http://inter7.com/qmailadmin/ which is a nice gui for qmail/vpopmail domains

    Great. that worked. thanks
    heres one that might not be possible

    Is there any way to make it so when the username [email protected] sends OUTGOING messages, it sends a copy of it to [email protected]

    or does jim manually have to add [email protected] on the CC or BCC or type in his email manually

    =/

    Possible, yes, but you have to hack qmail to do it.
