    Hi !

    My setup is Postfix + mysql virtual domains+courierimap+squirrelmail+postfixadmin

    It all works fine. From postfixadmin I can set aliases like [email protected] to forward to [email protected].

    What I want is email forwarding (like gmail) in which case
    [email protected] would actually be a valid accound that could read/write email and all its incoming mail would be delivered to both his mailbox AND to
    [email protected]

    Is this posible ?

    Thank you for a great site howtoforge.

    Uhm, no. Its like it is only an alias, not a real account (no password or anything).
    Should I be able to login with aliases and send mails ?

    (last night i modified postfix under virtual_alias_maps (i think thats what it was called) and I added besides mysql: also hash:/etc/aliases and at least now I can alias real email accounts and the emails will get redirected BUT STILL they will not get directed to the actual mailbox ALSO.
    Someone said to use .forward file but there are no home dirs so...... :-<

    I think so, although I've never tried Postfixadmin...
