Double mail issue


Hi,

Recently I moved mailing system from send mail to qmail..
After that I find the problem that the users available in Internet (I.e-Using service provider Server) are receiving the mail twice.

In Qmail my mailing architecture is like this. My mx is hosted by a service provider. I am having 30 email accounts & a catchall account in that server.
In my local server I am having 500 users.
The outside mails are delivered to internal server Catchall account.
My Fetchmail is like this-
poll (My server IP) proto pop3 localdomains mydomain.com no dns uidl
envelope "Delivered-To"
qvirtual (domain)-

user catchall@mydomain.com with pass "*****" is localcatchall@seml.co.in here keep forcecr flush dropdelivered
Configuration for the users available in service provider server.
/home/vpopmail/domains/mydomain.com/8/pushmail_online/Maildir/

Now the problem is like this-When a outside domain user sending a mail to two users I.e-one user directly receive the mail and another one receive via catchall . Now the user available in external server(MX or service provider end) recieves the mail two times, 1st time recieves directly and next is routed via local server.
Now I want to solve this double mail issue. Is there any modification needed in fetchmail?
Please have a deep look at this scenario and help me out from this situation.

Regards,
Jyotirmay

If memory serves you should use the delivered-to envelope item in the fetchmail configuration to sort the mail to prevent this.

That being said, what could ever possibly possess you to go from a modern, stable, easily supported mail system to qmail which hasn't been updated in years and is a patched hodgepodge of applications to even make it comply with mail standards and that by default backscatters and will get you added to every spam list on the planet?

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. I have tried with your solution.My .fetchmailrc file is like this.


poll "IP" proto pop3 localdomains hostname mydomain.com no dns uidl
envelope "Delivered-To"
qvirtual seml.co.in-

user user@mydomain.com with pass "password" is mycatchall@mydomain.com here keep forcecr flush dropdelivered

Can we set filter when it sending mail to online??
