Forwarding mail and saving a local copy

Nathan Salt -

PROBLEM

I wish to keep a local copy of forwarded mail

ENVIRONMENT

  • On-Premise Server + WebMail Installations: Version 6.0 > Current Version
  • Webmail Only Installations: Version 6.0 > Current Version

CAUSE

Mail is forwarded but does not save a local copy

RESOLUTION

Some users have expressed interest for the ability for 'Forward' a message and keep a local copy of the email message.

This can be implemented by editing the Exim configure file:

/usr/local/atmail/mailserver/configure

Locate the following router and add "unseen"

forward_director:
driver = redirect
data = ${lookup mysql {MYSQL_FORWARD}{$value}}
unseen  *** This is the line where you add "unseen" ***

Next, restart the Atmail server:

/etc/init.d/atmailserver restart

Users can now define a forwardng address via the WebMail interface. Incoming messages will be diverted to the external account, and a copy of the email stored locally.
