Question Mass email forwarding?


I run a website for about 10,000 "members". I would like to offer my members an email address on my domain and automatically have that forwarded to an email address of my choice. So I would offer them something like "somename@mydomain.com" and have that automatically forward to "someothername@theirdomain.com".

I realize I can do this with virtusertable, but I'm looking for something a bit easier to maintain. As it is right now, I would need to manually edit the virtusertable (then manually build the database with makemap/postmap). For 10,000 people, that would almost be a full time job. I also want any change to be instantaneously (so that if a person changes the "forward to" email address, the changes are instantaneous).

Any ideas?
