    How can I set up email pipes in ISPConfig3?

    Say, I would like all email coming to [email protected] ([email protected] catchall) to be piped through a /some/pipe/, rather than being delivered to the mailbox.

    Is there a way to do it in ISPConfig3?

    It's a bit of a hardcore way, and lack of basic functionality in a web GUI like this I would say!

    Anyway, what I did is:

    - in Mailbox -> Custom rules, added 'redirect "[email protected]";'

    - in /etc/aliases, added 'bounces: "|/some/"'

    - created a system user "bounces"

    - run "newaliases", so that Postfix picks up the new config

    It would be great if there was an easier way to do it.
