Thx Atropos7, I was able to confirm that a file was created under /Maildir/new.
The file name looked really weird, but when I pico'd it was the email i sent to the alias I setup in the panel.
I need further help. The next step is to process the incoming email after it's in the new folder. I am not sure whether there is a better way but my thinking is to have the filter that fowards the email to the shell account also trigger a script that pulls the contents of the email and does stuff.
Any good examples of how to do this with the new shell-email restrictions.
Please advise. Here is a good post on the kind of script I would use, I just don't know how to tie the newly created file under my shell new folder with the script...
