    Hi Folks,

    I searched for the answer to this, but maybe I was using the wrong search terms.

    I recently started using ISPConfig as a mail server (Postfix). I had been offloading mail to another server before.

    My question is this: How can I configure one e-mail address to point to multiple mailboxes?

    Thanks in advance,

    You can add multiple forward addresses in the forward field of the mailbox, one email address per line.

    OK, Thanks, I'll try that.

    I hadn't thought about forwarding. The last mail server I was using allowed me to create groups of users with the group having its own e-mail address. Then I just added the desired users to the group and any e-mail sent to the group would go to all the members.

    Is there any similar functionality in ISPConfig? Or do you just use forwarding?

    Thanks again,

    No, unfortunately not.

    That's OK. I just created a new user with the desired alias name and then set the forward lines for each desired recipient.

    Thanks again for your help,
