Mail forwarding

Print PDF

In the new set up mails will be delivered through procmail, after depositing the detected SPAM messages in a folder called SPAM in the user's ~/mail directory. This will require us to disable the .forward mechanism to avoid unnecessary forwarding of SPAM messages.

Users who wish to forward their mails elsewhere may do so by setting their mail forwarding address in their LDAP profile. There is no need to set up a .procmailrc file.

Please note that forwarding all emails to an external site and obtaining it back again through a browser is expensive, so please forward your mails only if absolutely necessary.
