View Full Version : [ubuntu] mail server

December 9th, 2008, 01:29 AM
does anyone know how to configure fetchmail to collect a catch-all email account and then deliver it to local accounts?

I have asked this question before but was wanting to do it a different way and got no real answer.

Now all it has to do is get the mail from the remote mail server then deliver it to my local mail server running on the same machine which is postfix/dovecot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at getmail, an interesting alternative for fetchmail.

Ok i have got this almost working.

I had this working fine on my test domain but as soon as i put it on our live domain it stopped working. I checked the log and this is what i am finding in my procmail.log

Folder: /home/catchall/mail/new/1229040716.4817_0.mail 7600

and here is my procmail filter


* ^Delivered-To: test3@dmdiesel\.com\.au
! test3@dmdiesel.com.au

It never used to do this. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening
