Email redirect

    I have a customer who wants to redirect their incoming email to another server, but wants to send their outgoing email through the plesk server.

    Simply turning on redirect keeps a copy of the message AND forwards a copy. Disabling the mailbox gets rid of the local copy, but then they can not smtp auth to send outgoing mail.

    Does anyone know how I can get rid of the local copy and still allow the user to smtp auth?

    Nope but I wish I did. Have exactly the same problem

    Any sugestions on this issue, other than creating a cron job to periodically emtpy the users mailbox ?

    Had a look at 4PSA's mail offering but it doesn't specify anything regarding mail redirects

    Create the user's main account, not as a mailbox, just a redirect. Then create a 2nd account (slightly different name) and have them reconfigure their email client software for this account for outgoing email. Not ideal, but it works.

    I don't know how permanent of a solution this is, but removing the ./Maildir/ line of this file may help:

    I created a little script that cleans the MailDir folders. The script runs as a cron job at 2:00 am each day. This script will hold on to 1 day's worth of messages. You can change the +1 if you would like to hold onto mail for longer. This file is located in the domain folder. (Ex. /var/qmail/mailnames/domainname.com)

    Here is my script.

    # Mail directory cleanup script

    for X in `ls -d */`; do
    find /var/qmail/mailnames/dominname.com/$X/Maildir/new -type f -mtime +1 -exec rm -rf '{}' \;
