Hello everyone,

Is there a way to have a user's email forwarded or redirected to another email addresses (internal and/or external and/or intrenal groups).

I would like to have user-1 email redirected to group-b and to user-2.

I would like to have user-3 email forwarded (local copy kept) to external-user@domain.suffix.

Aliases are not an option since user-1 and user-2 need to be on the domain and be able to send emails.

Thanks,
Kevin

    e-Groupware websiteEspecialy for your 6-year old. You spell it Se-vin, but it is just a nickanme. My real name is Robin.

    As far as i know clearOs doesnt push emails, it just pulls them from specific locations. And allows you, as client, to pull them from the server or to acces them from webmail. with Horde.

    Using groups might be the only good available option to get multiple users to acces the same email.
    The mail forwarding option in ClearOS only allows u to forward all mails oncoming on one domain to the next.

    Another option, that goes beond ClearOS basic installation is the option of eGroupware. From the little bit i have played with this it has a lot more options considering email ETC... but its an external FREE application that is webbased. U can find the tutorial under e-Groupware

    The main information about their bundle u can find under the following link: e-Groupware website

    It might be more usable, if you are talking about multiple usergroups and boards than just using ClearOS. If its like for just 4 users its shooting with a cannon on a flie, but if your talking 15 to 20 users its probebly a more workable option for managing E-mails and much much more.

    That's a good option.

    What we have are parents who may or may not have local accounts but all belong to various local groups that are used for emailing and web access rights. Most of them want their email forwarded to their personal accounts. We also have a board of directors with the same situation. For legal reasons we need to keep a copy of all email going to these groups.

    We use this system in our current server and it works quite well and is simpler than it sounds.

    I would not want to have to support educating everyone on how to "pull" their email.

    BTW ... my 6 year old likes how you spell your name and recommends I change my spelling.

    Instaid of pushing (forwarding your email, you can also pull your email externaly from your server. This might be an easier idea to use, so that your user 4 can pull the mail to the other domain instaid of having the server pushing the mail to there. Mail forwarding is, with a standard clearOS machine only possible for entire domains wich might not be what u ask. Some popular webmail coents have the possibility to pull mails from pop3/smtp servers...

    An Alias is an excelent option for an usergroup if you want them all to recieve the specivif mail. Unfortunatly clearOS does not yet have the option to give a usergroup an alias so they get the mail, instaid you need to Shift-select all users within the group to be added to that Alias email adress. Sending form there is just a configurating option.

    The Alias for example sales@mydomain.com can point to user 1 and user 2. Both of them get the messages send to sales in their mailbox. Both of them can send with the alias email as their adress since thats just a mail client configuration thingie. It should do exactly what u want. (The users also have their own mailbox, so they got one physical and 1 virtual mailbox that drops into the physical.

    Hope that helps u a bit
