Well, I have been waiting 5 hours for a reply and stumbled upon the forum so I figured I would sign-up here and see if I could get an answer to my question…
I am new to DreamHost (just signed up today) and have three domains that should all be resolving to the same webspace and have e-mail sent to the same mailboxes.
To make the example easier to follow I’ll post the three domains :
amninc.com (main domain) & amninc.net / amethystnetworks.com which should mirror for web and e-mail to amninc.com.
Currently we’re currently using Sendmail as our MTA, making use of the virtuser function.
In our virtuser table, which is a DBM file, we have entries like this:
What this does is take any message that comes to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and sends it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DreamHost Sales told me I could create a catch-all for amninc.net and amethystnetworks.com to forward to %email@example.com but I have yet to figure out how to do this in the Panel. (Let me clarify, I figured out where I THOUGHT I should be doing it but I get this error :
Invalid address ‘%firstname.lastname@example.org’: alias must begin with a letter, number, or the + sign
You must specify a destination address.
Please try again"
as you see…)
Is anyone else doing this sort of e-mail mirroring? If so I wonder if I need to be attempting to add this elsewhere or using a different variable in my forward entry aside from the %1.
