I need to forward all mail to an address on to two other addresses, whilst keeping a copy of the original email. I've got the following exim filter set up:

unseen delivery address@anotherdomain.com, address@mydomain.com

but this give the following error message in the mainlog:

vhost_forward router: skipped error: missing or malformed local part (expected word or "<") in "unseen deliver address@anotherdomain.com"

what am i doing wrong here?

Try doing two seperate lines; or surround each address with < > –  pjc50 Apr 10 '12 at 14:08
    
separate lines and surrounding with <> worked! (if you put your comment as an answer i'll mark it as accepted answer) –  Simon Blackbourn Apr 17 '12 at 23:37

Try doing two seperate lines; or surround each address with < >.

(The full email address format as defined by RFC 822 allows the form "User Name ", and I think exim only allows one delivery per "delivery" line)
