Default catchall account forward

Hello,

i have a small problem setting up a catchall account which should forward to a 3rd party mail account

example:

all mails send to @example.com (which is hosted on the ispconfig3 server) should go to info@example123.com (which is hosted on an external server)

i have tried all the configuration scenarios from the interface and i can not get it work, i can not even configure it logically not that the system is throwing some errors in the logs or so

how can be this scenario achieved? Please help! I couldnt managed to configure it

Thanks in advance!

1) create a mailbox.
2) add a catchall to this mailbox.
3) add a redirect rule in the mailbox account settings in the custom mailfilter field to redirect the emails in maildrop or sieve syntax depending on the mailserver software that you use. sieve for dovecot or maildrop for courier.

Hi,

for the record, here is a link to faqforge which explains the syntax:
http://www.faqforge.com/linux/contro...her-mailboxes/

works so far very good...

... but here comes the next question, i would like the messages to not be saved locally on the server but just forwarded, is this also made via maildrop rule?

Regards

Try:

to "!info@example.tld"

instead of:

cc "!info@example.tld"
