    qmail and vpopmail usage question


    I am working in a non-profit organization that needs to do the following in terms of our e-mail hosting.

    We have 4 domains.


    first.com
    second.com
    third.com
    different.com

    Currently, when a message is sent to user@first.com, user@second.com or user@third.com the e-mail goes to the same message store to be saved for pickup.

    Some folks have an alias setup that allows them to receive mail at differentname@different.com that gets directed to the message store for user@...

    I hope I am making sense.


    I am beginning to look at qmail along with vpopmail as a potential solution that would help us do what we are currently doing but allow us to do so at a much cheaper price.

    Is what I am describing possible with this combination? I believe I can have our hosting company redirect all e-mails for our 4 domains to this server so that shouldnt' be an issue. It is more of how with qmail handle this?

    If more information is needed. Please ask. I have just begun looking into this and I want to get a feel for feasibility before I jump into any test system to try things out.

    Thanks!

    Yes, this is easy to do with vpopmail; use vaddaliasdomain

    This is easy to do with regular qmail; it's probably easy to do with vpopmail as well. I'll have more information once I've tried it for myself (which I'll try and do over the next couple of days).

    Okay that seems like it would be straightforward.

    I look forward to hearing what you discover. This is really a huge help. I appreciate your help.

    Thanks!
