We have a kludged, "by hand" solution that suits our current small,
needs. I suspect by pointing your maildrop entry in your mysql database
to an entry in /etc/aliases you could make it work for you...
Perhaps somebody can suggest an improvement?
As a low priority background process, we're thinking about packages that
integrate with cyrus our soon to be new IMAP/Pop3 server. Maybe
We're running postfix/ldap, without "true" virtual domains, but with a
sealed mailserver and no home directories on the mailserver.
Everyone has an OS account and a default domain and every
firstname.lastname@example.org is an alias to their OS account maildrop in LDAP
Our main.cf has a line:
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases ldap:/etc/postfix/ldap_aliases.cf
Our /etc/aliases has lines like:
# A line that starts with whitespace continues
# a logical line.
mcarino: "|/usr/bin/autoreply -l
/var/local/cache/autoreply/mcarino.ar.log -i 90
...The bit after the comma is important if you want people to come back
and find their mail in their box after vacation.
One quirk of autorepy is that there needs to be a sym link from
/nonexistent to /tmp/
btw, autoreply is not packaged for debian. Debian-mentors rejected our
application for sponsorship, on the reasonable grounds that vacation was
already packaged and did everything autoreply did.
I've been trying to figure out how to setup an autoresponder for my
postfix/mysql server. I've done a bit of searching, and found quite a
bit of other people asking the same question, but i've yet to see any
Can any of you recommend anything?
