    Default Archiving to another SMTP


    I would like to archive all incoming and outgoing mails by forwarding a copy of the mail to an additional SMTP server. I am aware that I can send BCC of all emails to a particular log account using always_bcc.

    However I need to retain the original sender and receiver address in the SMTP handling, so that the archive server will process the mail with the corresponding control data. Using always_bcc the recipient header will get changed to the address where it will be copied.

    To make myself more clear, if was the original recipient and was set in always_bcc, the SMTP on archive server will read the destination as and not My requirement is that the archive SMTP should also read the destination as itself.

    I have been using Exim in the past for this, and I would simply add a router to accomplish the additional remote_smtp transport. What could be the equivalent of this in postfix?

    Why don't you use a mail archiving solution? There are several free versions available (search the forums or internet) and it might be easier than relying on another mail server and provide additional features.

    Hi Bill,

    I am using Atmail's Archivevault , but replacing Atmail server with Zimbra server. This requires the mail copy to be sent as
    is with the original control data.

    I will lookup the forums for any suitable alternatives.
