Procmail: forwarding mail to remote mail account


Hi!

I'm trying to tweak my procmail configuration to allow it forwarding my emails to another email account I have (a free email account accessible via a Web interface).

I really want to make sure that my hack won't create a mail loop (I already happened to me once with a simple .forward...).

The rules I wrote are as follows:

:0c
* $^To:.*\<$\LOGNAME\>
* !^FROM_DAEMON
* !^X-Loop: myemailaddress@a.b.com
* !^FROM_myforwardaddress@c.d.com
* !^FROM_myemailaddress@a.b.com
{ LOG = "Mail message forwarded to myforwardaddress@c.d.com" }
| formail -k -X "From:" -X "Subject:" \
-I "To: myforwardaddress@c.d.com" -X "To:" \
-I "X-Loop: myemailaddress@a.b.com" -X "X-Loop:" \
| $SENDMAIL $SENDMAILFLAGS -t

Basically, I'd like my email sent to my regular address (myemailaddress@a.b.com) to be forwarded to my web account (myforwardaddress@c.d.com).

My LOG line does not seem to work correctly, I always get the line in the log.
Also, if the message is not forwarded to myforwardaddress@c.d.com, I get two messages in mail mailbox: the original message and the copy.

What should I change to make my forward work properly?

Need Distribution List with sendmail

Hello sir/madam,

I need to configure an ID which works like Distribution List in MS-Exchange by using Send mail.

i.e I need to configure an ID so that if any mails sent to that perticular ID will be distributed to some number of ID's, by using sendmail.

If possible please send ur suggestions to praveen_b744@yahoo.co.in.

Thank you.

Regards,
Praveen.

In a smaller scale, you can use aliases in /etc/aliases.

Enter entry like
Code:
mylist: \address1@buguta.com,address3@example.com,address2@1.example.com
NB: Do not forget to run the command "newaliases" after save the /etc/aliases file.
