Unhappy Linux Mailing problem on Webmin


I've an scenario in my company for local and external mailing service. The FC3 server is using here for mailing solution which has installed Webmin control panel. In this control panel it uses the .fetchmailrc file for pulling up all the mails for external mail ID's and restore it to the targeted local accounts for delivery. Is it possible to set the multi-recipient forwarder for one or several external mail accounts in .fetchmailrc file? Means if the one mails falls in an account it should be forward to multiple accounts which I want to sent them. Also I'm looking for complete mail storage on this Webmin server for 1 week and each account with incremental backup system. Means with the mail backup I need a solution which should not handled manually every week. Like as squid log files which incremental and limits upto 64 MB for each file and exceeds only upto 7 files in a week. Then after it creates new file for log backup and end of week, file has been deleted or overwritten with next date format.


Best Regards,

you can achive the fowarding with a .procmailrc file in the fowarding account

For backup, there are many ways to go. Google for this, I dont want to push you any one way... there are lots of good open solutions. Amanda comes to mind as doing exactly what you need, but I have never used it and dont know if it is still supported.

On the point of being still supported, you should proablly do yourself a favor and work on a plan to migrate to a distro that still provides security updates. If youll be much better off than if you wait for a rootkit to get your attention.

umm, support is stronger than ever. There is an extensive community of Amanda users supporting one another through the mailing list and wiki. Zmanda provides commercial enterprise support and employs programmers to drive the development. There have been several releases in the last year or two, and the most recent, just this month, is a significant rewrite of important components to make them more accessible.

Check the links here, there are several for Amanda.

Recently, with Sun's acquisition of MySQL AB, Zmanda became a global partner with Sun. This was most likely driven by Zmanda's development of ZRM (Zmanda Recovery Manager) for MySQL, which is one of the best backup tools for any database (and open source). So Sun is providing global corporate support for ZRM for MySQL along with MySQL; which, of course, helps Zmanda and Amanda.
