How to create a Postfix "everyone" alias that points to all users (wildcard)?


Hello,

I am trying to create a Postfix alias called, "everyone" that will redirect mail to every user / alias on my server.

This sounds like a wildcard alias and I am under the impression that Postfix doesn't support wildcards. Is there a way to achieve this result without manually typing in every user in an alias entry?

I plan to apply class restrictions so only a select group of users can send to this alias / address so spam should not be an issue.

Does anyone know how this could work? Is there another / better way to get the same results?

Sincerely,

Andrew Grant

Maybe an sql- or ldap table is better? Then, a new query is made everytime the alias is encountered, so you don't have to manually update the mapping.

Do you have an actual example of an ldap query?

You can find example on the postfix site or as part of the installed postfix distribution: see here and here.
This rfc is also useful.
