    alias to multiple accounts

    Hi there,

    I've a customer moving from a different provider and is willing to have, as he had in his old provider, an alias forwarding mails to two (or more) different accounts.

    I tried to setup the same alias for two accounts in the same site and I got something like invalid alias or already in use.

    I know I can from the shell create alias to multiple accounts, I just want to give the customer the ability to create this himself, from the control panel. Is there any workaround at least? A patch to allow multiple aliases, something I can do but to go directly to the shell?

    The only way I am aware of to accomplish this is through the shell by creating a .forward file.

    I'd second that.
    .forward seems to be the only way without hacking the RAQ

    What about a mailing list that sends to the 2 or more accounts in question?

    When in doubt, don't forget to look at the obvious

    I have a customer doing exactly this.

    They are using the mailing lists to send one email addresses / aliases to 7-10 staff members.

    Just remember to set config for the list so as non members can post to it.
