    Hi,

    I would like to setup an autoresponder for an entire domain.

    I've tried with a catch all but only messages specifically sent to the catch all mailbox receive an auto-response, other catch all mail does not receive an auto-response.
    Should this be done in a script in the main.cf file?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    you could write a sieve custom rule to provide that functionality.

    Hmmm, pondering further on it, I think sieve isn't probably the way to go... it would be simple for all incoming mail.... but not just for one domain.

    actually, I think it's easy. Add

    always_bcc to the postfix main.cf

    That will cause that of every email passing through the server a copy will be sent to the specified address.

    Aftwares for that email addres, make a custom filter like:

    Code:
    ### BEGINN CUSTOM FILTERS
    if anyof    (header :regex    ["Delivered-To"]    [".*domain.tld"],
                header :regex    ["To"]                [".*domain.tld"]
    ){
        vacation  :days 1
        :addresses ["[email protected]"]
        "add
    your
    autoresponder
    text";
    
    }
    # Delete email from the bcc account
    discard;
    
    ### END CUSTOM FILTERS

    the one issue I see is when the recipient for domain.tld is in bcc... then it probably won't work.

    Any maybe also add a regex for CC field

    Wow, that always_bcc seems to be a dangerous feature, is it possible to use always_bcc for a single domain?

    First off, thanks for all your input.

    I setup a catchall address, and then I installed avelsieve with dovecot-managesieved but it only auto-responds if email is sent directly to the catchall address. any other address that is redirected to the catch-all does not trigger the auto-responder.
    This is what I did so far:

    1. Installed avelsieve from here: http://code.uoa.gr/p/avelsieve/download.php (added source, then installed ubuntu package)
    2. Followed this howto to get filters setup in squirrelmail: https://github.com/cmjnisse/sogo-ispconfig/wiki/Use-manage-sieve-protocol
    3. and then fixed the imapflags error with this article: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.mail.squirrelmail.plugins/16444

    I haven't tried the always_bcc option in main.cf, I'd like to see if that can be done to one domain only, ISPconfig server is hosting multiple domains.

    Thanks,

    Why dangerous?
    Not, can't use always_bcc for a single domain - since it's "always"
