    hi everyone,

    i setup my server following this tutorial:

    but i cant get the option SEND OUTGOING COPY TO in the email accounts to work.

    i also tried configuring postfix itself for sender_bcc_maps as in this tutorial:

    but neither does work!

    i also read somewhere that this function would only work on new accounts, so i setup a new one and nothing...

    any suggestions please? i would be very grateful for any help!

    thank you in advance! regards, Joe

    If you want to do this in postfix, i would use sender_bcc_maps and / or recipient_bcc_maps.
    create /etc/postfix/bcc_maps:
    add this file to postfix
    postconf -e "sender_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/bcc_maps"
    postconf -e "recipient_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/bcc_maps"
    and reload postfix
    postfix reload

    hi Florian,
    that is exactly what i tried after i saw that it doesn't work in ispconfig and unfortunately it doesn't work either. i don't even get error messages in my logs.
    could there be any directive blocking this function in my

    I use this setup on my servers and this working without any problems. Just make sure, that you did not defined this in other places in postfix. grep -i bcc /etc/postfix/

    grep -i bcc /etc/postfix/

    Returns this:

    sender_bcc_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sender_bcc

    proxy_read_maps = $local_recipient_maps $mydestination $virtual_alias_maps $virtual_alias_domains $sender_bcc_maps $virtual_mailbox_maps $virtual_mailbox_domains $relay_recipient_maps $relay_domains $canonical_maps $sender_canonical_maps $recipient_canonical_maps $relocated_maps $transport_maps $mynetworks $smtpd_sender_login_maps

    Is the "$sender_bcc_maps" wrong there?

    If you just want to send a copy of every email passing through postfix to just one user/account, you could simply add

    always_bcc = [email protected]
    into the

    No.thats not what i want.
    I read all the docs and it still doesnt work.
    I only want to copy outgoing mails for one specific account.
    I check the ispc db and there are the entries in the sender_cc column.
    It seems like postfix ignores these and the sender_bcc_maps.
    It is a production environment and i cant reinstall it all either :(
    What to do?

    i just tested always_bcc = [email protected]
    and sent copy to [email protected] in ispconfig,
    but postfix seems to completely ignore these.
    i am modifying in /etc/postfix/
    is there any other config file i have to modify?
    thank you
