Ticket #1894 (closed defect: fixed)
Multiple Virtual Aliases for Single External Mail Account
|Reported by:||tim@…||Owned by:||javier.amor.garcia@…|
In the "External accounts aliases" section under the "Virtual Mail Domains" subsection under "Mail", I can add one alias that will forward to an external account.
I want to add a second (and third) alias for that same external account, but when I try to do that, it tells me "External account name@… already exists".
I tried setting up a chain of forwarders, by providing an extant alias as the target of a third alias, but that failed in the "Save changes" step, saying "name@… is a mail alias. Alias of aliases are not allowed."
I'm used to Unix mail alias files where alias chains and multiple aliases are a normal and useful thing to do. The current restrictions seem arbitrary, and they reduce the power of an otherwise very useful system.
