    Default Multiple forwarders per address or multiple aliases?

    What I am trying to do:

    I want to have my admin@ account forward to a number of people and not actually store any email. It also has a number of aliases (noc@, root@, postmaster@). But I cannot figure out how to create multiple forwarders per account.

    So I created admin as a distribution list to add the people to receive the email sent to admin@. Problem is I cannot find where to set aliases for a ditribution list (or if it is even possible). So I would need to create a distribution list for every alias also and add the forwarding users to it...

    Is there a way to either add an alias to a distribution list or have multiple forwarders per account?

    EDIT: I just realized I can add distribution lists to other distribution lists. Which is kind of like having an alias for one list I guess... Though it's not very easy to add many 'aliases' at once.

    You could also just semi-colon separate the forward attribute. So multiple forwards.

    Hi,

    Don't seem to work. I put a semi-colon between the two email address in the forward under options.

    And it gave me an error saying invalid email address error.

    Try comma? remove the spaces? If not I guess the distro list is the only current work around.

    Hi Kelvin,

    Tried taking out commas and taking out spaces does not work. Should i file it?

    is there any way of making a distribution list or a user account not searchable in the GAL?

    Well the comma/ space idea is a hack. The real need is support for contact groups. That should already be in bugzilla. There is a hideFromGAL ldap attr int he next release that should allow you to hide certian distro lists.
