View Full Version : using wildcards in email addresses with qmail (DV server w/ plesk 8.6)

Dec 24, 2009, 10:02 AM
I'm trying to set up an email address in qmail such that a unique identifier can be passed as part of the email address.

For example:

reply-123@example.com, reply-345@example.com, reply-99999@example.com would all go to the 'reply' user and be sent to the same shell script. Currently, email sent to reply@example.com goes to the script and I pass the unique id in the subject or message body. I have added both a .qmail and .qmail-default file in the ~/var/qmail/mailnames/domain.com/reply/ directory. However, all email sent to reply-nnn@mydomain.com gets rejected with 550 - mailbox not found. I've checked permissions, read the guides and manuals - it seems like this should work. I suspect that the assign file may have something to do with this but I can't edit it as Plesk always overwrites my edits.

Is there something I'm missing to get this working on Plesk? I'm working on a Mediatemple DV server with Plesk 8.6.0. Thanks!

Sorry ArtH,

I really am not sure. Maybe you should send a PM to one of the admin or moderators here? I can see you're not getting an answer...

To support extensions for bounce@sender.com, you need a .qmail-default file in ~bounce.

Thanks Raven,

Really appreciate that someone who knows what they're talking about finally responded! On a different note, anybody know anything about fixing a headrest dvd player (http://www.headrestdvdplayersite.com)? Love to hear from you if so!
