question: is there a way to filter incoming messages and act on them
(delete, print a copy, etc) prior to them being put into the rt queue?
example: "firstname.lastname@example.org" has an entry in /etc/aliases that puts all
incoming mail for ‘support’ into a queue. you want to be able to dispose of
certain pieces of mail without it ever reaching the RT queue, or print a
copy of selected things and move them along into the queue.
using mandrake 7 with sendmail, procmail as the local delivery agent.
quickly skimmed over a few man pages and came to the conclusion that entries
in /etc/aliases would get acted on before procmail got a chance to filter –
is this correct?
any help appreciated, i don’t want to dig into the bowels of sendmail if i
don’t have to.
