Now I am having Postifx --> procmailrc---> maildire---> dovecot and I need to have another maildir in another folder inside /root as a backup at the same time having /$home/maildir ?

First and second both should have mails in maildir format.

How can I instruct procmail to have second maildir in another location /root ?.

If this second location need be another server, how can I send the mail to there?

my current procmailrc file is at /etc and which is --->

:0fw: spamassassin.lock
* < 256000
| /usr/bin/spamassassin

* ^X-Spam-Status: Yes


Your help expected.




Youc can use c flag (carbon copy).

Add this lines before the one with :0

  • To deliver to a different server, change the action line to ! address@otherserver. This will add another Received: header and possibly change or add some other headers. – tripleee Nov 19 '12 at 7:54
