Hi,

I have a configuration "challenge" and so far, I have been unable to find a solution for it (or I am not looking hard enough).

Here is my situation:

I have 2 domains: abc.com and xyz.net

Email for abc.com is retrieved per user via POP3. I have 1 remote pop3 address per user and a catchall address. Each pop3 box is retrieved by Kerio Mailserver and the messages are delivered to a fixed address.

Email for xyz.net is retrieved via a a single catchall address. Now I want to distibute the messages to users configured in Kerio and everything that can not be matched with a Kerio user needs to go to a catchall Kerio address.

Now here comes the "challenge": The person administring the xyz.net Kerio users has no rights to create POP3 sorting rules so what I would like is for Kerio to find out by itself what user to send the mail to in the xyz.net domain and if there is no such user, to deliver the mail to the catchall<_at_>xyz.net user.

Thus, my question is: "Can this be done?"

Thanks in advance

Regards,
D.

Here are some ideas that I came up with on how to handle stuff like this:

* When adding a user, have a checkbox to create the pop3 sorting rule automatically or enter a sorting rule. (1 step process in stead of 2 step process)
* Command line administration or scripts. This way I can create my own administration web interface.

And from another approach:
* Autodistribution to user in a specific domain. When retrieving POP3 mail, let all the messages be automatically distributed. If a user doesn't exist, give the option to discard the mail or send it to a catchall address.

Just my 2cts.

Regards
D.

In addition to regular users, the whole story goes equally for groups and (I assume) for aliasses.

I created 2 users, added sorting rules for POP3 retrieval and that worked fine.
I also created a catchall user in case an invalid email address was used.

Now I created a group containing both users via the web admin interface.

When I send a mail to that group, it ends up in the INBOX of the catchall address. So I would have to create a new sorting rule for that group. And I can only do that when I can access the management tool for that server which might not be possible for a few days.

This is not very handy and I would like to know if there is a workaround for it. (And creating inbox rules for the catchall mailbox is not really an option)

D.

After playing around a bit, I think it boils down to the following:

* When using sorting rules per user, I can use the * -> catchall<_at_>xyz.com for undeliverable messages but I have to create a rule per user
* When using the sorting rule *<_at_>xyz.com -> *<_at_>xyz.com I don't have to create any other rules but undeliverable messages are bounced to the sender with a system generated message telling the sender the recipient address does not exist.

What I want is the possibility to use sorting rule *<_at_>xyz.com -> *<_at_>xyz.com and when the message is undeliverable to forward the message to a catchall user.

Anyone any ideas?

Regards
D.
