I have a postfix + virtual users setup. I have enabled maildrop as the delivery agent. How can I write a filter for a user so that if mail comes from a particular domain to that user a copy also goes to another email address.


It's been a while since I've used maildrop to create recipes, but I believe something like this:

if ( /^From:.*domain\.com/:h ) {
  cc "!someothermail@domain2.com"

    Thanks Jon for the pointer. That was something for me to start with. There is a slight correction to the above, maildrop requires a "!" to understand that it needs to be send via sendmail. It should cc "!someothermail@domain2.com" – proy Jun 16 '10 at 5:54

    I finally managed to get maildrop working with virtualusers in postfix details here netzary.com/blogs/2010/jul/01/… – proy Jul 16 '10 at 17:57
  • @proy did you keep a copy of your blog post somewhere else ? I can't find it on the archive.org neither. – ychaouche Mar 31 '16 at 14:12
