Default External email-forwarding of catchall in


in ISPConfig I cannot change some of my (already existing) "email-forwarding-rules".

I've created a email-mailbox for a domain ("check@domain.de"). Then I created (among other alias, forwarding rules and pop3-mailboxes) a catchall for this domain - redirecting to that (first) email-mailbox ("@domain.de -> check@domain.de"). The reason is that I only can select existing mailboxes as destination for a catchall.

Now I had set (in some release before... 3.0.1...) a forwarding for this mailbox to an external mail-address ("check@domain.de -> spam@external-domain.de")

If I go to the forwarding-page to change this setting now (or add a new one) I got the error message "Es existiert bereits eine Mailbox mit dieser Email Adresse" (already a mailbox with this address exists). Sure, that's right :-) but why it's a fault by now?

What other way exists to have following settings:

info@domain is mailbox (IMAP)
test@domain forwarded to info@domain
@domain forwarded to spam@external-address

You can use transports to forward emails to other mailservers.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.

Default Transport-functionality

Hi Till,

I thought a transport will affect the domain at whole? I just wanted to handle catch-all in an other way than some (few) special accounts.

And: that was possible in earlier ISPconfig 3 versions - I've created and used such domain configurations - and it looked as if it worked :-)
By now (even - maybe some version before - I haven't tried to modify that config some time) I cannot save a rule like that any more.

So - assuming it worked - there is now a discontinued function in ISPConfig 3. Are there some compatiblitiy reasons? I haven't found an entry in the bugtracker?

I have the same problem, but the above solution is not the one for me. I have the following setup:

info@mydomain.tld receives mail for info
sales@mydomain.tld receives mail for sales and presales
[catchall]@mydomain.tld the rest must go to an external email address for a marketing concern

With the transport the other mailserver must know and handle the domain.

Is there a solution for this?
