    Hi There,

    I want create a filter that will check incoming email and replace the subject. I found on net this filter:

    if /^To: [email protected]\.com/
    /^Subject: (.+)$/ REPLACE Subject: [TEST] $1

    But when I add this in ISPcondig Content filter nothing happen. (I replaced [email protected]\.com with my own email)

    Source code of the email is little different

    To: Firstname Lastname <[email protected]> so tried to change it to:

    if /^To: Firstname Lastename [email protected]\.com/
    /^Subject: (.+)$/ REPLACE Subject: [TEST] $1

    Didn't work also.

    Can someone help me to crate the right filter to add in ISPcondig?

    I've never tried this before, but in a quick look I don't see any way to enter the if/endif conditional in the ui, how is it you are accomplishing that? I would expect this has to be done manually, directly in postfix config, and not via the ISPConfig ui, but maybe I'm missing something.

    This is for now what I have found. Its do a check but always give the first IF and not the second one.

    [email protected]:/home/poudenes# cat test.eml
    From: Nobody <[email protected]>
    Mime-Version: 1.0
    To: <[email protected]>
    Subject: TESSUBJECT
    This is a test message
    header_checks files have this
    if !/^To: [email protected]/i
    /^Subject: (.+)$/i REPLACE Subject: (test1) [$1]
    if !/^To: [email protected]/i
    /^Subject: (.+)$/i REPLACE Subject: (test2) [$1]
    [email protected]:/home/poudenes# postmap -vhmq - regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks < test.eml
    postmap: name_mask: all
    postmap: inet_addr_local: configured 2 IPv4 addresses
    postmap: inet_addr_local: configured 2 IPv6 addresses
    postmap: dict_open: regexp:/etc/postfix/header_checks
    postmap: dict_regexp_lookup: /etc/postfix/header_checks: From: Nobody <[email protected]>
    postmap: dict_regexp_lookup: /etc/postfix/header_checks: Mime-Version: 1.0
    postmap: dict_regexp_lookup: /etc/postfix/header_checks: To: <[email protected]>
    postmap: dict_regexp_lookup: /etc/postfix/header_checks: Subject:
    Subject: TESSUBJECT     REPLACE Subject: (test1) [TESSUBJECT]

    That sounds correct. As the thread I linked to above explains, header checks work on one header at a time; for any message that comes through, the Subject header will not match your regex that starts with "To:", so the transformation on the subject line will be performed. What you are trying to do can't work.
    @till posted above one possible solution, ie. perform the rewriting in sieve.

    thanks for the info. Changing subject in sieve is not working. I have some email addresses that are aliases and goes to a other.
    All mails that comes in for the alias I want change the subject. So I can see in the mailbox in subject what used receiving email address was used.

    That was the whole idea. But I think im stuck and have to accept that it won't work what I want
