Sendmail and iPop3


Hey all

I have a RH9 server running sendmail and ipop3 and need to create multiple mailboxes for multiple domains. I have trawled through the aliases file and haven't figured out how to achieve what I need.

For instance, sendmail won't allow duplicate aliases but I need to have more than one of the same.

I need the following.

support@123.com
support@345.com
support@456.com

When I try and add the full address and update the aliases file it complains that there are duplicates. How do I go about hosting multiple domains and have the same alias for each domain?

well...this just might be a stupid answer but.......maybe:

alias 1 -> points to adress
alias 2 -> points to alias 1
alias 3 -> points to alias 2
etc....
(dunno if it's possible ? )

Hmm, I don't think so. They need to be seperate mailboxes.

How about using /etc/mail/virtusertable for your aliases
